A video source is a set of channels from one provider. So, the
first question is, do you receive the exact same set of channels
for both the digital and analog inputs? If so, you only need one
source. However, if there are channels available for one and not
the other, then you would want to set up two video sources even
if both were grabbed with XMLTV from the same website. One with
the channels you receive on the analog inputs and a different
source for the set of digital channels.

No. But first, there clearly is a problem somewhere if you have one
source and there are duplicates of the same channels in the EPG.
It is possible that you may have gone through the setup multiple
times and inadvertently created duplicate channels that don't exactly
match. Could you send the output for the following:

$ mysql -u mythtv -pmythtv mythconverg
mysql> select sourceid,name from videosource;
mysql> select cardinputid,cardid,sourceid,inputname from cardinput;
mysql> select chanid,channum,sourceid,callsign,xmltvid from channel;
