what i did, which is simpler in my opinion (only one scan, doesn't
involve direct manipulation of the database, etc.)

1. delete the old channel setup
2. run a channel scan
3. customize zap2it line-up to include only those scanned channels
4. retrieve the line-up
5. go to channel setup and got the xmltv id (don't remember the exact
name, something like that) from the retrieved channels
6. type in the xmltv id in the corresponding scanned channel
7. go to mythweb and delete the retrieved channels
8. run mythfilldatabase to get the listings

hope this helps.
