Hi there, 
The chanid's may not match in mythconverg here's how to check them.
Open a terminal and log into mysql with the same user name as mythtv ' 
mysql -u username -p ' . When logged in choose the database ' \u 
mythconverg ' then query mysql ' SELECT DISTINCT chanid FROM channel; ' and 
then ' SELECT DISTINCT chanid FROM program; ' both tables should match. 
Alternatively you can try using this php script I wrote, just extract it and 
put it in apache document root.
wget http://www.linuxfire.biz/public_ftp/epg_helper.php.tar.gz then in a web 
browser http://localhost/epg_helper.php
