I've recently installed myth 0.17 and used the tv_grab_au that came
with it and ran into the same problem. I told the scanner the
frequencies to look on, and it found all the channels, then I ran
mythfilldatabase and it grabbed a whole lot of data. After ending up
with a whole heap of channels in the "channel" table of the database I
realised that tv_grab_au created it's own channels (without tuning
data or channel numbers) that didn't match up with the channels
created by mythtvsetup.

In the end I manually edited the "channel" table, to put the correct
tuning information (from the mythtvsetup channels) into the channels
created by tv_grab_au and then deleted the channels made by
mythtvsetup. So I ended up with the correct tuning information, along
with the epg data for each channel. It was a bit of a pain but it's
working ok now.

Hopefully that will set you down the right track to getting your
channels setup correctly.
