The steps I think you need to do (please, anyone else jump in here) are:
1. mythfilldatabase with your country grabber to get your channels set up.
2. Go to http://cvs.mythtv.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/
and get mythtv/contrib/channels.conf-import.pl
(Sorry - CVS web access is not working for me at the moment for some 
reason, so I can't check the full path)

3. chmod 755 channels.conf-import.pl

3. Edit channels.conf-import.pl to set the import file type or pass it 
the right command line arguments (-t (tzap), -s (szap), -c (czap), etc).

4. Run ./channels.conf-import.pl

Good luck!
