Thanks everyone.  I managed to do most of it manually using phpmyadmin.

The steps I did was:

1. Scan channels inside Mythtv
2. Manually add all the xmltv ids into the mythconverg database using phpmyadmin (for example london.bbc1.bbc.co.uk)
3. Remove the xmltv ids that were not needed from /home/mythtv/.mythtv/<video source>.xmltv (speeds up download of listings)
4. Make sure that any new/missing channel ids were in /usr/share/xmltv/tv_grab_uk_rt/channel_ids (for example dave.uktv.co.uk)
5. Run mythfilldatabase (which also seems to provide icons stored in - /home/mythtv/.mythtv/channels/)
6. Download and add any additional icons into the mythconverg database using phpmyadmin

Garry's site has some scripts as well as icons in .png for TV and radio.
