How are you scaning for these channels?  Are you using a "Full Scan" and putting
in the information for 1 channel and its attempting to find the rest?
Next time can you send me the console log from setup when you are doing the

Can you send a me a dump (offlist if its a bit big) of your channels and
dvb_transport tables in mysql?

There is no support for using mythfilldatabase right now as IT will add extra
copies of the channels (this might be where your dupes are coming from, or are
you positive it found the other channels twice?).. You really should try and
use mythscan2 now and see how that works for you..
