The fact that the new channels are shown is a good sign but 
mythfilldatabase generally only grabs data for days where there
is little or no data. You should be able to grab a full set of
listing for all channels and days with:

$ mysql -u mythtv -pmythtv mythconverg
mysql> delete from program;
mysql> quit
$ mythfilldatabase
