Thanks for all the suggestions.  The three sources I am referring to are 
not video sources, they are the input connections, one for television, 
svideo, and something else.

 From all the suggestions, I decided to delete all video sources and 
recreate the one for my card.  Before this, I was getting an error when 
exiting the mythtv-setup program that a channel was set to something 
that didn't exist, even though my old DVB video source was not there 
anymore.  That has gone away.  Obviously, there was extraneous stuff in 
the db.  Unfortunately, this hasn't fixed my channel changing problems. 
  I am unable to play with the system until later this week, but I guess 
I will just try to delete *everything* and start over.  Maybe that will 
fix it.
