You should delete them in both places because the next time you run  
mythfilldatabase (using default options) the channels selected in SD  
that do not appear in your database will be inserted back in. You have  
to run with --remove-new-channels to avoid that from happening. And  
yeah.. the fewer the channels, the less stress, less time, etc, etc.
