Do i need to be South African to respond ? If so then i apologize first,
but otherwise i'm a non south african watching C-band DSTV in africa and
i believe you can just download the listing here and feed it to
mythfilldatabase. See the bottom of this page:
However for me this didn't work since (some of) the C-band programs are
different to what you get in SA, so i wrote my own web parser which i
have been using on my dreambox for a few months perfectly. I'm in the
process of dumping the dreambox in favor of mythtv and am just a the
stage of channel scanning on my DiSEqC, so have not reached the
mythfilldatabse stage yet. Please let me know if the wiki above works
for you and/or you want my web program parser.
