You're probably using this: https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/XMLTV#Schedules_Direct_Setup

I'd mention the grabber you picked tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite or
tv_grab_zz_sdjson to get more help.

I used tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite and was prompted for user/password
in the 1st command:

  tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite --manage-lineups --config-file /home/mythtv/.mythtv/<your source name here>.xmltv
