Strange. When I go into the Channel Editor I see a screen which has a
box at the top to list channels, then below that 2 drop down boxes
called Sort Mode and Video Source, then a checkbox for Hide channels
and then at the bottom of the screen 2 buttons - Scan for channels &
Advanced. When you click that Scan for channels button that's when you
get to enter the frequency.

Could be a couple of reasons why you don't see these buttons:

- Maybe they're hidden off the bottom of the screen? I don't know how
you fix that but there will be lots in the archives about buttons not
fitting onto the screen.
- Maybe you have to enable something else when compiling MythTv? I
install from ATRPM binaries so I don't know how that works.

Good luck,
