what xmltv grabber are you using? In case of the teveblad nl, it is

some extra info: for ketnet/canvas, I use canvas.vrt.be and the
following line in cron (this calls the xml grabber, converts ketnet
stuff to canvas (so I can have both as one channel), and sends the xml
file to myth:

tv_grab_be --slow 2>/dev/null | sed '/<channel
id="ketnet.vrt.be/,/channel>/ d' | sed 's/ketnet.vrt.be/canvas.vrt.be/'
> xmltv.out && mythfilldatabase --file 1 -1 xmltv.out > /dev/null 2>&1

hope this helps!
