[mythtv-users] mythfilldatabase duplicating xmlid's on scte65scan imported channels

I have been trying to get my channels working in .22 for a couple months
now.  Since the channel scanner broken and cannot distinguish sub-channels,


I have resorted to using scte65scan to pull a sql file together which looks
pretty accurate except for missing a few channels I could add manually (See
attached SQL file).  I imported the SQL file and the channels appear
properly and seem to work fine when tuning.  Next step is to get guide data
from SD.  Schedules direct is not willing to match my QAM channels numbers
as I receive them through my cable provider so I have to manually match
based off xmlid's.  If I edit 1 channel manually and add the xmlid, the next
mythfilldatabase duplicates that id across several other channels.  For
example if I edit channel 9-1 and add 52345 for the ID, the next
mythfilldatabase attaches 52345 to my imported channel 90 as well.  90 is
TBN but has the guide data for channel 9-1.

Can anyone tell me how mythfilldatabase can change my channel xmlids?  And
since schedules direct has failed to match my local cable QAM channels (very
disappointing I might add), how can I manually pull the guide data.
