More on converting mythtv for WA daylight savings time, *if* you are using 
the grabber for tvguide.org.au

First, go to your /home/mythtv/.mythtv directory and make a backup of your 
tvguide.org.au.xmltv file
cp tvguide.org.au.xmltv tvguide.org.au.xmltv_2006dec08 
(you will need it, because fiddling with the channels resets the config 
file to default settings... sometimes). 

As root (sudo -sh) stop mythbackend from running, on ubuntu this is
/etc/init.d/mythtv-backend stop

Run mythtv-setup, go to General- then to Global Backend Setup, where you 
should see "Time offset for XMLTV listings", which I previously had set to 
+0800 (Perth non-daylight savings timezone).  Change this to +0900

In your tvguide.org.au.xmltv file, check that your ABC2 timezone setting 
is -0200.  The other channeltz settings should be +0000, or should not be 
there (one per channel line). 

Restart the mythtv backend
/etc/init.d/mythtv-backend start

As mythtv user, run
mythfilldatabase --graboptions "-v -v -v"

There, you are done!  When the timezone changes back you'll have to do it 
again to change mythtv back to +0800 and your grabber setup for ABC2 to 
-0300.  There may be a better way to do it.... but this works OK
