I had a similiar issue, run mythfilldatabase with the --do-channel-updates
flag.  I don't know why the straight import from lineup doesn't work.  I'm
having a problem where my frequencies themselves are getting mucked up.
Channel 2 and channel 50 are both coming in as channel 50.  Other channels
seem fine.  Have no idea what's causing it, I got it to work last night, but
it seems to have screwed up again today.
