I had exactly the same problem.

I notice that your freqid's are not what Myth expects (it expects those
weird frequency id's like E11 etc. not frequencies or whatever your 5 digit
numbers may mean ;) ) Supposedly you have to calculate those id's based on
the build in myth tables from the frequencies. I never got that working

True. For that reason I submitted a patch to de devlist last week that adds
this option using the MythWeb interface.

The easy work (worked for me and at least one other person). Use the script
that is mentioned at the end of this thread:

The hard way (also works). Patch your source and build it again:
