On startup, I get this message in the backend log:

Using configuration directory = /home/mythtv/.mythtv

So, can I use the command line to set up xmltv before running
mythtv-setup and put the config files in


for example and then I can go into mythtv-setup, choose the new
grabber and then I will be able to choose the lineups I created there?
