the links everyone wants are workig fine. one other option is to use xbmc. that works for me (watching baseball right now )
most of the italian links are down. either a bit of prioritizing server space is being done or somebody didn't pay their cable/satellite subscribtion fees .
other links that are down (russian channels/some of the polish channels), have been down for months now (or they just don't work for me).
i hope nobody expects poor Darby to test all of the channels too, after writing these awesome FREE programs. without people like him and his great contributions , we'd all be picking our noses and trying to find other things to do/watch.
if things work, they work. if they don't, deal with it or use your imagination and try to figure out ways to get them to work.
