       The original author was Christian A. Rodriguez, car at cespi dot	unlp
       dot edu dot ar, basing tv_grab_ar on tv_grab_es by Ranin	Roca.

       Significant updates and patches have been provided by:
	 - Mariano S. Cosentino, 4xmltv	at marianok dot	com dot	ar

       This grabber extracts all information from the cablevision website. Any
       changes to the website may cause	this grabber to	stop working.

       Retrieving the description information adds a considerable amount of
       time to the run and makes the file quite	large.

       It might	be a good idea to cache	program	descriptions so	there is no
       need to refetch them.
