How about adapting this script to your needs ?
I wrote it when our broadcasters were frequently fiddling about with
Freeview (DVB-T) channels & muxes. I got fed up with manually
renumbering the channels and deleting the ones I didn't want, so I
wrote this script to do it automatically.
Obviously there is some work involved in setting it up, but once it's
done then you can rescan any time you want, run the script, and get
the channels you want on the numbers you want. Anything you don't
want to use is set to non-visible and as far as the user is concerned
it doesn't exist.
