You mean there's something improper about MythTV's calling 
mythfilldatabase with the arguments you've specified (or, with MythTV's 
not calling mythfilldatabase with the arguments you've failed to specify)?

mythfilldatabase Arguments
Any arguments you want passed to the mythfilldatabase program.

In frontend settings under General.  Just saying that without the right 
arguments, you'll never get mythfilldatabase to add channels that aren't 
in your DB (or that were somehow removed from your DB).
