Digital channels can't be added manually (excluding those captured
digitally from "external" tuners, such as firewire and HDHR Prime)--we
tune them based on the information in the stream on the tuned
multiplex. If MythTV isn't getting information about the subchannels,
then either you need to fix MythTV to properly read the information your
provider is sending or you need to get your provider to fix the
information they're sending.
If you didn't in the first place, you must do a proper channel scan
