xmltv download custom file name

My EPG provider (Freepg) packages up the xmltv file based on user and location.

The resulting file has the parameters used to download after the file name:


I tried a number of things to get that file recognised by DVBlink without success.

When configuring DVBlink to download this file it would be great if we can tell it a file name to save it as (EPG.xmltv.gz).

I had to set up a cron job to run a script which did a wget -O <filename> into my QNAP Web directory and then point DVBlink to download the resulting file from the QNAP web server.
It works for me but it's not something I should have to do and it would be almost impossible for someone who knew nothing about UNIX.
