XMLTV is a few things with the same name.

  • XMLTV is a very popular XML based file format for describing TV listings. see XMLTVFormat
  • XMLTV is an interface contract between programs the emit guide data and programs that consume it. see HowtoWriteAGrabber and HowtoUseGrabbers
  • XMLTV is a perl module that helps to create XMLTV formatted documents. see XMLTVModule
  • XMLTV is a collection of tools to obtain, manipulate, and search TV Listings. see XMLTVProject

Most of this Wiki has to do with the XMLTVProject
