You really need to use mythtv-setup. The channel editor in MythWeb is
fine for making small cosmetic changes, but for manipulating video
sources and inputs, you need to use mythtv-setup's Channel Editor,
Video Sources and Input Connections GUI.

If the grabber you use to get your listings requires being configured
when you configure the video source it is attached to in mythtv-setup,
you can not simply change the sourceid in MythWeb, as any underlying
configuration will also need to be amended.
As things stand currently, do you have all channels (2-101+)available
on all of your video sources?
