ok, seems you've found a problem with my config. mythtv-setup seems to run 'tv_find_grabbers' to fill the list of the 'tv_grab...' scripts. if their not discoverable in $PATH, then mythtv wont find it.
i figured it was todo with the updated name.

got that issue sorted now and mythtv-setup is now showing the xmltv entries.
