Sometimes they do it just before the change.  Other times they take a while.

Just go into MythWeb and use the channel editor to set the freqid of the 
existing channels to the new channel number.  You can (but don't need 
to--as it's irrelevant to Myth) change the channel number, too.  
Basically, all you have to do is map the xmltvid to the frequency ID 
used to tune the channel with that programming content.  (Note that the 
channel number is /only/ used in MythTV as a means by which the 
user--you--can tell MythTV to what channel to change in LiveTV.  
Therefore, you can make channel numbers anything you want.)

Once TMS corrects the lineup, if you want to use the "right" (where most 
cable companies put things on channels using the wrong numbers, anyway) 
channel numbers, I recommend
