> So is the a "tv_grab_au" for this data?

If you go to http://www.cse.unsw.edu.au/~willu/xmltv/tv_grab_au_reg.html
you can download their script and include it in your own shell script
called tv_grab_au.


For anyone who's interested in going down the wget path, here's how to.
1) Put the commands below in a shell script (note the wget command is
all one line)
2) Change the sed commands to be suitable for your own XMLTV IDs
3) Change the output file name to suit after the ">"

wget --input-file=/home/mythtv/.xmltv/tv_grab_au_tvg.conf
--output-document=- | sed 's/SBS-NEWS/news\.sbs\.com\.au/g ;
s/Seven-Syd/sydney\.seven\.com\.au/g ;
s/Ten-NSW/sydney\.ten\.com\.au/g ; s/SBS-NSW/sydney\.sbs\.com\.au/g ;
s/ABC2/abc2\.abc\.gov\.au/g ; s/Nine-Syd/sydney\.nine\.com\.au/g ;
s/ABC-NSW/nsw\.abc\.gov\.au/g' > ~mythtv/.xmltv/tvlistings_tvg.xml

mythfilldatabase --file 1 7 /home/mythtv/.xmltv/tvlistings_tvg.xml

The url for wget is specified in the --input-file param as it needs to
contain your tvguide.org.au username and password. Make this file
rw------- by chmod 600 so that others can't see your account logon
details. The file should have one line like this:


NB - for these to work you need to set up a free account first on their site.
