Thanks for you reply. Since I'm a very new beginner, can you please
correct me if I'm wrong here.

Grabber, as I understand, is a program to grab the output and format
it into xmltv format? How can I find more info on how to write it? Do
you have any suggestion?
After I format the data to xmltv format, how can I insert those data to db?

Where does mythtv store ftp's url information for datadirect,  anyone know?

Thank you very very much.
