AIUI, mfdb tries to determine if a channel is digital or analog and uses
that information to decide whether to add it to a lineup or not.  In
some cases, that's not possible (i.e. with an STB's output connected to
an analog encoder and with the same cable signal via another analog
encoder's built-in tuner).

Since, by default, mfdb adds new channels it finds available to the
lineup (even when not added to the lineup) to lineups associated with
analog inputs, you need to tell it not to do this.  In that case, you
should run with --remove-new-channels.
