This changed recently, for the better.  Previously, you had to manually 
enter the real channel and program number into freqid, but now we get 
the real channel and subchannel from zap2it.

Your big issue here is that WGBHDT3 and WGBHDT4 don't really exist. 
Unsubscribe from them at zap2it, and remove them.  WHDHDT2 is another 
phantom.  The others look all right to me (I'm in the Boston area), but 
you have duplicate channel numbers which you should fix.  Or, if you 
clear your HDTV channels from your channel table entirely and fix your 
zap2it subscription, mythfilldatabase should recreate them properly (in 
the new form, with _ in the channum).
