I think that if you do this new channels will get added to both  
sources as they appear in schedules direct unless you add

    When using DataDirect, ask mythfilldatabase to
    remove new channels (those not in the database)
    from the DataDirect lineup.  These channels are
    removed from the lineup as if you had done so
    via the DataDirect website's Lineup Wizard, but
    may be re-added manually and incorporated into
    MythTV by running mythfilldatabase without this
    option.  New channels are automatically removed
    for DVB and HDTV sources that use DataDirect.

to your mythfilldatabase command.
