Schedules direct is asking users to switch over to their JSON service. According to their Forum post the current mythfilldatabase grabber will stop working on Nov 1st. "Schedules Direct has been operating since 2007 to provide a stable environment for non-commercial media applications to receive TV listings data, but that does not mean things never change! :)

We have been informed that Gracenote (formerly Tribune Media Services) will be ending the guide data service currently used by most users of Schedules Direct. Their plan is to end support for this service on November 1, 2014." http://forums.schedulesdirect.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=2577

Here is the GitHub for their new JSON grabber.

At least one LinHES user has successfully switched as mentioned here: http://forum.linhes.org/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=24050#p138970
