I read the referenced post several times, and understand, I create a
lineup that includes all the channels any of my video sources use, and
assign that lineup to those video sources, but I am not understanding
at what stage I tell myth that one of my sources cannot access all the
channels in that "meta-lineup."

Does the "mythfilldatabase --remove-new-channels" simply compare the
"meta-lineup" with what was the older lineup in the database (from my
prior, multiple zap2it lineups I used) and do all the work for me?
