Nope, I was wrong, the freqid is the same as channel number, it's
videofilters that's blank.

FWIW I've run "optimize tables" from both mythweb and from Mythtv
(Mythdora tools), it doesn't help.  Ditto for "repair tables"
I think I'm going to have to bite the bullet and copy off all of my data
(800+ GB, yuk) and do a fresh install.
