What does it mean to "see"? While this may be obvious to you
as you try whatever you are trying, I could only guess what
you are doing and what the result is.

If you successfully truncated the table, the auto-increment
would have been reset and the new numbers would have been 1,
2 and 3 rather than 5, 6 and 7. You now have this as "7" where
this was "3" before, correct? If you've re-added the cards, this
should fix any input name problems and you may be able to go
forward. However, you may want to renumber these once you get
things figured out. It's possible that you may be using an old
version of myth where the card delete options were being changed.
However, this will fix it for sure:

Stop all myth frontends and backends.

$ mysql -u mythtv -pmythtv mythconverg

$ mythtv-setup

Of all the possibilities (and there are many) magic is unlikely
to be the root cause.

Do you have TV listings for both chanid 9 and chanid 1001?

mysql> select count(*) from program where chanid=1001;
mysql> select count(*) from program where chanid=9;

What happens if you enter live TV, press "9", Enter? Does
it show "Kanal 5"? What if you press "I"nfo; does it show
the correct title and description? Press "Y" to change inputs
and look at the input identifer each time you change. Check
"9" for "Kanal 5" and it's program info for all three inputs.
