You may be picking up the same channels broadcast by more than one transmitter. 
In that case, the same channel (ID) will be broadcast on a different channel 
(frequency) in order to avoid interference problems.

When myth scans the second (or subsequent) channel with the same ID it doesn't 
know what to do with it. Is this the one you're supposed to have, or was it the 
previous one(s)?

You *did* do a 'delete all sources' operation, didn't you, rather than delete 
each source individually? 'Delete all sources' guarantees to clean out all of 
the database info from previous attempts.
