You have a couple of options to do this. I don't use tv_grab_il, but I
suppose it is similar.

1. You can add support for new grabbers by modifying the following
files: libs/libmythtv/videosource.cpp and
programs/mythfilldatabase/filldata.cpp. This means you have to recompile

2. You can trick mythfilldatabase by making a symlink from one of the
existing grabbers to your grabber.

3. You can do: 
#tv_grab_il > listing.xml
#mythfilldatabase --file 1 -1 listing.xml (1 is number for the video
source to use with this file)
