Something like

$ perl /usr/bin/tv_grab_uk_rt --config-file
/home/mythtv/.mythtv/dvb.xmltv --output
/home/mythtv/uk_rt_sourceid1-dvb.xml --quiet
$ mythfilldatabase --no-delete --file 1 -1 /home/mythtv/uk_rt_sourceid1-dvb.xml

Possible options for both programs are contained within them -
essentially you need to configure the xmltv file so the grabber gets
the channels you want, and then make sure that mythfilldatabase fills
the data on the correct sourceid in the myth database.
