Error 407 Returned by Schedules Direct

I use Pocket TV Listings to download lineup data. WebLink (the data scraper of PTVL) has been generating error 407 when trying to download data. I deleted and readded my lineup, but that didn't seem to resolve the problem.

What is error 407, and what can I do on my end to resolve it?

Thanks!

HTTP Error 407 - Proxy authentication required

Does your network use a proxy?

Yes. What's interesting is that this error is new, I've been using PTVL for more than a year here; and the proxy has been in place longer than that.

I don't know if PTVL uses XMLTV's tv_grab_na_dd to fetch data.... XMLTV uses environment variables to specify proxy address/usernames/passwords. Maybe your proxy server has changed? Some may use Windows authentication and pass the user/pass transparently (which tv_grab_na_dd can't do).
