Are you using tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite?

If so, you can update the selected channels using sqlite3.

Find your sqlite database (file with extension DB in the .xmltv directory)

sqlite3 xxx.DB
update channels set selected = 1 where channum = 123;
update channels set selected = 1 where channum = 124;

If you want to unselect one set selected = 0
update channels set selected = 0 where channum = 999;

There is also a script in the wiki at 
https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/XMLTV#Channel_selection_shortcut . I have 
not tried it.

If you are using tv_grab_zz_sdjson there is a shortcut in the wiki at 
https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/XMLTV#Channel_selection_shortcut_2 .
