Just in case for everyone who finds this thread and uses xmltv. The
grabber config is written to the home directory of the user that runs
mythtv-setup but read from the home directory of the user that runs
mythbackend in the automatic runs. Simply moving the file to the right
place or symlinking it will solve that.
