[mythtv-users] Mythfilldatabase not removing channels

I use --remove-new-channels.
I have 2 types of cards, both of them only get a subset of the channels so I
activated all the ones I could get and then deleted the channels on each
line-up that that card does not get. Using --remove-new-channels prevents
them from being added back onto that line-up. 
One thing to be aware of is that it also prevents new channels from being
automatically added to your line-up when they get added to schedules direct.

I have quite a few channels disabled in Schedules Direct. Mythfilldatabase
continues to treat these channels as legitimate. Is there a way to get it to
clear these channels? I tried:

mythfilldatabase --only-update-channels

but this caused channels to be added that mythtv hadn't previously known
about before but are disabled in Schedules Direct.
