If you're using a digital (scannable) input for your TV, you must do a 

If you're using an analog input (i.e. digital cable with an STB + 
PVR-x50 or HD-PVR) or an unscannable digital input (i.e. firewire from 
an STB), you need to run:

mythfilldatabase --only-update-channels --do-not-filter-new-channels
