The following works for me; run as a cron job twice a day.
tv_grab_dvb -d -t 60 > sched.xml
mythfilldatabase --no-delete --file 1 -1 sched.xml
The epg info is available on all multiplexes except A (from memory), for
which only now/next is given (and that should be fixed when it goes
national). I simply let it run - so it uses whatever multiplex my first card
is tuned to at that time. Seems to work without a problem - no need to tune
into any given multiplex.
I don't think it really needs anything else :)
