Sorry your top posting confused me. Please don't.

The ubuntu package for the standard dvb command line scan app is named
dvb-apps. It obviously can't directly import channel info into your
database. However it can produce a channels.conf file, which I think
you MAY be able to import into myth via mythtv-setup (I have
recollection of seeing a "import from channels.conf" or similar.)

I can't point you to any command line utility within mythtv to
automatically scan for channels sorry.
