Can I get the TV listings without using xmltv?

I think I'm asking a fairly simple question, but I'm not getting an answer. I'd like to get the TV listings in whatever raw format this site offers (XML, I presume). I'm running Linux. I can not install xmltv on my machine. Is there an alternative? Surely this is a simple and basic enough function t...

Re: What's the easiest way to get the raw listings?

The xmltv installation required me to install 27 perl modules before I could even attempt to get the xmltv programs to work. 27! Surely xmltv isn't the easiest way.

Re: What's the easiest way to get the raw listings?

I tried to install XMLTV. After spending about 4 hours on it, I gave up. It's probably a problem with my machine, or my Perl installation, or whatever (I'm not a unix guru). Be that as it may, I just want to get the TV listings, and I don't need all the XMLTV bells and whistles. I'm a bit suprised t...

OS: Red Hat Linux
Language: Perl (or C, or C++, or whatever scripting language)

Possible FAQ: Just let me download the TV listings

I'd just like to download the raw TV listings in whatever format this site provides without have to go through xmltv or any of those full-blown DVR applications on the Approved Apps page (I spent 4 hours trying to install xmltv and I'm giving up. I really don't need all that functionality anyway). C...

What's the easiest way to get the raw listings?

I'm giving up on XMLTV. I ran into 5 or 6 problems getting it installed (the last was that "tv_grab_na_dd --configure" failed because of an undefined subroutine ask_choice). Is there an easier way to get at the raw listings data? I don't need all the bells and whistles in XMLTV (like Japanese charac...
