International ebay search

There are several localized eBay sites. Some are connected to ebay.com, some are not.
I'm looking for a free script that will allow simultaneous search on all sites.
Preferably also with the option to specify ads which currently has zero bids.

eBay sites:       
Asia Pacific:            Europe:            North America:
Australia                    Austria                    Canada
Hong Kong            Belgium            United States
India                            France            
Malaysia                    Germany            
New Zealand            Ireland            
Philippines            Italy            
Singapore            Netherlands            
South Korea            Poland            
                              Spain            
                              Sweden            
                              Switzerland            
                              United Kingdom

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This should really be a straightforward script, as I see it (but of course I'm not a programmer). I just want to join several searches like this:

http://www.ebay.es/sch/i.html?_nkw=apple+ipad
http://www.ebay.fr/sch/i.html?_nkw=apple+ipad
http://tech.ebay.com.au/apple/?kw=apple+ipod

...

(you get the idea)

and produce a compiled hit-list.

Ok, I managed to whip something together myself, but I can't get the results to show in the iFrame.

Help appreciated!
