On the frontend, tune these channels and enter the channel editor.   I 
think by default it is "E" on your keyboard and fill in the callsign, 
xmltvid and other information.  If you don't know the xmltvid, I think 
you can get it from the tvlistings.com site run by zap2it in the link 
for each channel.
