You don't need to do that. You can make your ss7.conf look like this:

; First E1 with signalling on timeslot 16
channels => 1-15,17-31
schannel => 16
firstcic => 1

; Second E1 with no signalling and audio on 31 timeslots.
channels => 1-31
schannel =>
firstcic => 33

Yeah. It would be a shame to have unused timeslots on an E1. fortunately you can avoid this :)
