FreeXtv is back up people !! (mind you it's still rubbish)
The problem was apparently down to the channel provider as there web site explains:
NEW NEOTIONCRYPT FAILURE (06/01/04):
We regret to announce that the scrambling service provided by Neotion has again failed since last Sunday and Neotion has been unable to fix it to date. The channel is still broadcasting and viewers using our Irdeto InXworld smartcards are not affected.
Aware of the inconvenience caused by so many shortcomings from our service supplier Neotion, we are actively looking for alternative solutions to upgrade both the security of our scrambling and the comfort of our viewers. An upgrade will be announced here and made available very soon. Please accept our apologies and bear with us while we work on these issues.

When they say "comfort of our viewers" may I suggest knee pads ? O-Ha
