All you have setup at the moment are your channels. This is why you
can record using callsigns.

To be able to schedule recordings normally by choosing a program
title, you need to either use a suitable XMLTV grabber (which I think
you said does not yet exist for India) or if possible use a DVB card
and have it get it's data "over-the-air" using the EIT listings

I would check to see if you can receive DVB transmissions using a
PCI/USB DVB card for your computer as this could provide access to
listings and also provide better quality recordings than using a
S-Video/composite connection from your DVB set top box.

You need program listings...

I would strongly recommend (re)reading the MythTV documentation to get
a better understanding of how MythTV works with program listings in
order to schedule recordings automatically for you.
