Peter, this sounds like you may have "ghost" channels in your database.  
I recommend doing the video sources portion of 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/264034#264034 to 
clean up all the garbage currently in your database, then re-create your 
video sources, connect them to inputs, and rescan/re-fetch channels--but 
this time using the information you've since learned about how to 
configure them properly.
