Rename the grabber's config file to /root/.mythtv/MiGuiaTV.xmltv.

If you are running an XMLTV grabber under the control of MythTV, the
name of the config file (before the extension) needs to be the same as
the name of the video source using it.

Your current grabber config file (tv_grab_es_miguiatv.conf) has the
default name given when configuring the grabber manually.
