Right.  mythtv-setup, Channel Editor, select a channel, and you'll find 
the frequency ID on the second page.  The frequency ID is the value 
that's sent to the channel change script (or tuned using the analog 
tuner if using RF-modulated input).  If using an external script, it can 
be any value you want--it just has  to be something your channel change 
script understands.
