What problems are you still having?

Deleting the unnamed channels (as you mentioned at the start of the
thread) would not affect the integrity of the database. You can set a
valid starting channel for the affected input in mythtv-setup on the
Input Connections screens for that input.

Out of interest, is this a DVB-S setup? Here in the UK, a full tuned
DVB-S scan can result in a lot of unnamed/garbage channels. I usually
set their 'visible' and 'useonairguide' flags to off to stop them from
being used. The digital scanner also has several options to ignore
encrypted channels that could otherwise break recordings/LiveTV if
MythTV attempts to use them.
