[mythtv-users] unable to add new channels from Schedules Direct lineup

I've got three input sources that share the same Schedules Direct
lineup.  Sourceid 2 is clear QAM, sourceid 3 is everything that my STB
-> HD-PVR can record, and sourceid 4 is used by my Prime w/CableCard.

I'm trying to updated sourceid 3 and sourceid 4 from my updated
Schedules Direct lineup, after which I'll remove the copy once channesl
from sourceid 4.

I've tried fetching the lineups for these two sources using both
mythtvsetup and with these two variations on mythfilldatabase, but the
new channels aren't getting added for sourceid 3.

mythfilldatabase --do-channel-updates --only-update-channels \
--do-not-filter-new-channels --sourceid #

mythfilldatabase --do-channel-updates --only-update-channels --sourceid #

There should be a total of 270 channels, but with all of these methods,
I see something like this in my terminal window, and the new channels
for sourceid 3 don't show up in the channel editor.

Other than an almost duplicate entry for one of the channels that I
happened to notice in the channel editor, I don't happen to know what
the other extra channels are for sourceid 3.
