mythfilldatabase does not add channels to digital lineups unless you
tell it to do so explicitly with the --only-update-channels
(non-destructive) option or the --do-channel-updates (destructive)
option. Automatically adding to a digital lineup is dangerous as the
channel may be encrypted or may require additional setup (i.e. scanning)
to be usable.
See "mythfilldatabase --help".
