Not sure what grabber your using but you can maybe either rename files or sym 
link them or sign-up with http://minnie.tuhs.org/twiki/bin/view/TVGuide/ .
Register with the TWiki, First & last name is also your Wikiname or your IP 
will be banned. Once you have signed-up got to the in 'TV Guide web 
interface' then 'Set user preferences' choose the channels you want also set 
download format to XMLTV format. Go back to 
http://minnie.tuhs.org/twiki/bin/view/TVGuide/ and download the script 'A 
simple XMLTV grabber' the grabber will then need to be setup for your 
Mythfilldatabase runs the grabber and loads up data without a prob.
