I ran into this situation when I did a "bare metal" install and started 
my mythconverg database from scratch about one month ago.  Once I 
realized that I was recording A&E rather than Fox (and missed an episode 
of "24") I examined the channel table and saw pretty much what you had 

I believe that this is still an issue in SVN (unless the patch didn't 
register in my mind when I went through -commits), so if you haven't put 
together a patch I'm willing to test it out.
