Throwing away all your history of recordings and starting from scratch? 
Using the last few years of data isn't worth $5/mo (potentially $20/yr)
to you?

The different grabbers that are "built" into MythTV have
grabber-specific code associated with them, so MythTV won't really work
by just changing the name of your grabber.  Instead, you need 0.20.2 or
higher (which provides support for XMLTV capabilities and
tv_find_grabber, thanks to Stuart Morgan) to use your own custom grabber.
