Problem with XMLTV in Freevo


I have installed Freevo 1.5.2 on Fedora 1 (Sasem/Dign driver for Lirc holding me back) and got it all up and running and been happy about it using it for playback. But now i want to use it for videorecording as well. I have got my TVCard up and running in both TVTime and xawtv, and have installed the XMLTV grabber.

When i start the XMLTV-grabber manually i do get a nice file in /tmp/TV.xml and it looks like sound XML (it is a lot of it, so i did not check in detail). However, when i start freevo and enter the TV-program listing i get a nasty error that my menu has failed, and that the log contains more data.

When i look at the log i see this:
Code:

However i have the recoding server running and AFAIK all data is available for this server......

Can anybody help me with this nasty problem?

Hmmm,

When i do

[root@localhost root]# tv_grab_nl

I get
Code:
using config filename /root/.xmltv/tv_grab_nl.conf

<!DOCTYPE tv SYSTEM "xmltv.dtd">

caching data, this may take a while

    server = xmlrpclib.Server(server_string, allow_none=1)
TypeError: __init__() got an unexpected keyword argument 'allow_none'
Anybody know how to solve this?

I've googled the last error, and found out that it could be related to a library, but a fresh install of all XMLTV-related libraries did not resolve it.....
