Having been dissatisfied with performance and features of xmltv2vdr
(too slow, no credits/category information in epg.data) I have created
a new script (based on AWK), that can be found in the attachment.
If you want to try it, put your channels.conf.xmltv in one folder
with these two scripts, and then run cat *.xml | ./xmltv2epg > epg.
My mileage: 54MB XML -> 18MB EPG in 44 minuties (xmltv2vdr used to
take 9 hours).
