I thought I had already fixed it to put something into missing 
name/callsign fields -- I'll check again.

Indeed.  I always delete the existing channels before retuning, either 
directly in via MySQL (deleting all records in tables 'channel' and 
'dtv_multiplex' where sourceid is the source that I'm retuning), or via 
mythtv-setup (the channel editor will delete all channels for a source).
