Normally it's a file called  SchedulesDirect.DB in the hidden .xmltv 
directory in the home directory of the user that ran 
tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite --manage-lineups.

So if you used the mythtv user it will be in 

The actual location of the database can be set in the .xmltv config file 
for the source. This is mine for a source called FreeviewHD

$ cat FreeviewHD.xmltv
