I'm in Australia and use a grabber called Shepherd. The way I run this is
from a shell script and it outputs an XMLTV file. Once I have that XMLTV
file I load it into MythTV:

mythfilldatabase --only-update-guide --file --sourceid 1 --xmlfile

This is all contained in a wrapper script so I have one cron job that calls
the grabber then calls mythfilldatabase.

I don't it matters where the process that created the XMLTV output file
runs. So it seems to be you could do something similar after transferring
your XMLTV file to your backend machine.
