Remember I wrote those options as a kludge, no guarantees, as support
people like us who don't have a mythtv-supported grabber. It was never 
meant to work easy or foolproof.

The 7 means "import the 7th day from now on". Probably not what you
want. I 
think you's want "-1", meaning "anything in the xml-file".
So the complete options should be:

         mythfilldatabase --xawchannels 1 ~/.xawtv
         mythfilldatabase --file 1 -1 xmlfile.xml

(With the filenames replaced with your actual settings).

Also _VERY_IMPORTANT_: Be sure your names in the xawtv file match
those used by your grabber. Don't include spaces, and match case as well

>Ps the option --xawchannels works with the option default as 
Could be, don't have the source here. But you should try with '1', as
it justs inserts records named "default" instead of "1" in the database.
that is the case it would run without errors, but the inserted records 
would be useless to you.

Maybe you can find some other info on my site that will help you:
