For me mythfilldatabase --manual didn't work. So I used the channel
setup screen to get an idea of how the channel table in mysql looks 
like and then set up a file containing INSERT-rules for each 
channel to feed to mysql with 
#> mysql -u mythtv -p mythconverg < channelfile.sql
just because the file is easier to adjust than mysql.
Don't forget to "DELETE FROM channel;" in mysql to delete the 
channel table before your next try.

And as Niklas said, you need to rewrite the channel-names. I use Ex 
for Kx channels and SEx channels for Sx channels under S21. For S21 
and more it remains Sx, at least where I'm living :)
