See this is the problem, it just does not work that way. Mythfilldatabase has 
nothing to do with scanning or 'database syncs' as you call it. You're 
mistaken but won't accept that this is the case. Deleting channels would have 
worked, it immediately removes the channels from the database.

I don't know how to explain the behaviour you report above but to suggest user
