Well, then something else you did fixed your system because the "Delete
all video sources" button in Video Sources causes mythtv-setup to
truncate channel, program, videosource, credits, programrating,
programgenres, dtv_multiplex, and cardinput. The "Delete all capture
cards" button in Capture Cards (but not the "Delete all capture cards on
<hostname>" button) causes mythtv-setup to truncate capturecard and
cardinput. So, there's nothing you cleaned up that using "Delete All"
Of course, doing this while mythbackend is running--by explicitly
ignoring the "WARNING: MythTV has detected that the backend is running.
Changing existing card inputs, deleting anything, or scanning for
channels may not work." prompt upon starting mythtv-setup would prevent
this from working (as explained by the warning itself).
