Yngvi Þór Sigurjónsson (yngvi@teymi.is). Heavily based on tv_grab_dk by Jesper Skov (jskov@zoftcorp.dk). tv_grab_dk originally based on tv_grab_nl by Guido Diepen and Ed Avis (ed@membled.com) and tv_grab_fi by Matti Airas.

Version 1.1, Eggert Thorlacius (eggert@thorlacius.com). Started out by replacing a couple of channels with XML feeds, but ended up by removing the sjonvarp.is code completely. Left in the "xxx.sjonvarp.is" XMLTV IDs for backwards compatibility.
