MythTV needs a guide to know when to start recording. This guide information is fetched usually once per day at night. Configuration of the guide is different depending on where you live. If you are in Canada or in the US, use Schedules Direct. If you live in the UK, Ireland, Australia, Germany, Austria, Finland, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Hungary, Denmark, Japan, Sweden, France, Norway, or Romania, use XMLTV. Belgian/Dutch, Belgian/French, Brazillian, New Zealand, and Swedish MythTV users use PyTVgrab.
