Yes, I did that. You can use w_scan to get the full data and then input 
the missing transportid and networkid into the dtv_multiplex table.

Since mythtv-setup does not let you do that, you have to use for example 
mysql command prompt or phpMyAdmin to do that.

For example, this is from w_scan:

transportid = 1079
networkid = 1

After you did that for each multiplex, you have to enable EIT scanning 
for the Video Source and for each channel.
