First, make sure you don't have both EIT (the "over the air guide") and 
Schedules Direct providing data for any one channel--each channel should 
get data only from one provider, EIT or SD.

Then, you should clear out all the garbage data in your DB.  The best 
approach is the video source portion of 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/264034#264034 (so I 
won't tell you that something like TRUNCATE TABLE program; TRUNCATE 
TABLE programgenres; TRUNCATE TABLE programrating; would mostly 
work--assuming your video sources aren't broken--just leaving a bit of 
garbage that would probably eventually get cleaned up since I'm a big 
fan of clean data and I haven't ruled out the possibility that video 
source/input connections configuration is not the cause of the issue).

Then, restart the backend and re-run mythfilldatabase and wait for EIT 
to populate the data and see if it's better.
