I mis understood... I only have the online up, no cable box in my equation.

If this is the case, just lining up the callsign should be enough for
zap2it, and maybe add another number in front of the channel.. so say
1200 instead of 200.  as long as the xmlid gets lined up correctly,
the channel number shouldn't matter.  Others might be better at than
me though.
