Ensure that your channels have the xmltv IDs set. Then use 
mythfilldatabase to import the file into the database.


By way of example, here is the grabber script I use.

pushd ~mythtv/.xmltv
rm tv_grab*.out
nice tv_grab_uk_rt --config-file tv_grab_uk_rt.conf.new --output 
nice tv_grab_nl_py --config-file tv_grab_nl_py.conf --output 
tv_grab_nl_py.out --cache cache --compat
nice /usr/bin/mythfilldatabase --file 1 tv_grab_uk_rt.out
nice /usr/bin/mythfilldatabase --file 1 tv_grab_nl_py.out

The "1" after "--file" is the video source ID, of which I have only one 
at the moment.

HTH, Jan
