Thanks for all your help, it works!!!

I just need to config the Video Source ID:

/usr/bin/mythfilldatabase --file 3 TV.xml

I must enter "3". Now it works great.

Last question: Which is the best way to get updated the EPG? Cronjob,
or config on the backend to run mythfilldatabase with my parameters?

Thanks for all and best regards.
