Hi Gregoire,
I have not tried this myself, but Klaus provides a script called 
getskyepg.pl. It comes with each VDR. It parses the xml files from this 
page http://www.bleb.org/tv/data/listings/[-1-6] and it needs it's own 
channels.conf.sky to be able to work.
Just take a look into the sky folder under path_to_VDR/PLUGINS/src/sky.

Let me know if it worked or not.

Good look.
