I had the same problem, as have others.

If you look closely, you will see that the scanned channel number is
"91" and the EPG channel number is "9_1". I think that's why
mythfilldatabase could not associate them.

Now that you have both sets of channels, I think the easiest thing to do
is to look at all the EPG channels, and write down the XMLID for each
one. Then, in mythtv-setup, select Channel Editor, and set the XMLID
for each of the scanned channels. Also, change the channel number to
match the scanned number.

Next, run mythweb, click the Setup icon, and select "Channels". Delete
the EPG channels.
