I think you could implement it in two different ways:

1. Create a script which takes the output from your xmltv grabber and joins
the two channels to one.

2. Place them as separate channels, but with the same frequency and write a
script which deletes all programme entries for the time frames where the
channel is not being broadcastet. This could probably be written as a
general script, which takes three parameters: Channel id, start time and end
time. Then run the script on each channel immediately after
