Peter, this sounds like you may have "ghost" channels in your database.
I recommend doing the video sources portion of
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.
