If you're doing a partial import of your database, your best bet is to
use: http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Database_Backup_and_Restore .
It will also allow partial restore including plugin data.  With the
approach you took, some of your tables may contain garbage and/or
invalid data which may at some point create problems.  I'd recommend
starting with the last full backup and repeating the partial restore
using the scripts discussed in the wiki page.
