What if you instead of relying on the --out parameter try to just 
redirect the output?

python .xmltv/tv_grab_dk_ahot.py > /home/myth/ahot.xml

If that works I would strongly check wether the grabber has a --out 
parameter or if there is something wrong with it.

- who is combining tv_grab_se_swedb with tv_grab_dk to get both Swedish 
and Danish channels...
