To retrieve program information in the USA you will use Zap2it from Tribune Media Services. In order to use the service you must go to and sign up for an account.

The DataDirect 'certificate code' for MythTV is ZIYN-DQZO-SBUT

As of MythTV v0.19, the DataDirect grabber respects the service's Suggested Download Hour, to help reduce load on the DataDirect servers; to make use of this, you must be allowing mythbackend to run mythfilldatabase, instead of running it from your crontab. If you're running from cron, you should probably switch when you do the upgrade.
