While I read the OP's question as "How do I tell MythTV which listings 
data goes with which channel?" (the question that Thomas answered 
properly), if he was really trying to ask, "How do I get MythTV to allow 
me to select a lineup when configuring a Video Source?", the answer is:


That said, it's really hard to tell from the OP's question exactly which 
step of the many required to configure channels isn't working.
