When configuring the channels for the video source, you delete the ones
that are not available to the input with which the video source is

If you are "converting" a video source from Z2L to SD, you had already
accomplished the step of assigning appropriate channels to the video
source (using the multiple Z2L lineups from your multiple Z2L accounts),
so you don't need to tell Myth anything more.  The only time you'll need
to delete the extra channels is when you're setting up a new video
source from scratch.

Assuming you're using a 0.20.2 version (or current -fixes or trunk), you
don't need --remove-new-channels, anymore.
