What do you mean by: as its violating site "TOSs" -- SilentButeo2 12:24, 8 January 2014‎ (UTC)

That grabber appears to collect information from web sites in a way that is against the wishes of the site owner. Usually the EPG/Metadata sites have something like "no automated scraping" in their Terms of Service (TOS).
For example it appears to support scraping the site that is talked about on http://www.bucksch.org/1/projects/various/xmltv/
Also it appears to access IMDB in a way that violates http://www.imdb.com/help/show_article?conditions -- Dekarl 12:58, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
