Personally I got it working by running "mythfilldatabase --configure", not
tv_grab directly, but I'm not sure whether that amounts to the same thing.

"Channels.xmltv" implies that, in your mythtvsetup program, you specified
the DVB source as "Channels" - mine, for example, I set up as "Terrestrial
TV" and therefore I get a "Terrestrial TV.xmltv" in the .mythtv

Maybe by running tv_grab_no directly instead of via mythfilldatabase, it
didn't pull the right filename from the mythtv configuration?

I'm guestimating, of course ;]
