[mythtv-users] How does MythTV process EPG data from standard XML fromat?

MythTV accepts two XML formats - that which is
presented by DataDirect (in North America), and that
which the XMLTV grabbers return (the rest of the
world).  They have different structures, so they are
parsed differently.

I couldn't even really begin to explain how it works
(though I have gone through this code for a patch I
submitted a couple of weeks ago).  I would advise that
you look at the file filldata.cpp in
programs/mythfilldatabase.  I don't remember if
anything in libmythtv also integrates with the
non-DataDirect sources or not.
