This is correct. Although oddly, when watching tv, you can select a
hidden channel. This is not an issue for me as I never use Myth to
I suspect though that you were bitten by the bug that Mike Perkins
described. If you search the archives, you can see how to fix it. I
believe it involves upping a limit in your php.ini file, but not
certain. Either way, even if you resolved that issue, once you
(successfully) deleted the channel, it would still have re-appeared
using mythfilldatabase unless you did one of the things I suggested,
which you now have done.
