I usually open up the schedules direct website, and get the xmltv id by 
hovering the mouse cursor over the station id.

Then I go into the mythweb channel editor, and enter the xmltvid in it 
for each channel.

Once that has been done, and saved, you can run mythfilldatabase with 
the '--refresh-all' and '--refresh-today' options.
(I'm not sure if it is necessary to do --refresh-all, but I figure it 
can't hurt.)

After doing this, you should be ready to go.
