A name like #1051 is displayed when there is no channel for the chanid
in the recording.  The 1051 is the chanid that was used to make the
recording and is stored in the recorded.chanid field.  I get
recordings like that when I use mythexport and mythimport to move
recordings to another MythTV system which does not have the same
channel setup.  So it looks like your new channels were created as
completely new - the old channel was deleted and a new one created,
and the new one has a different chanid.  This may have some
implications for your recording rules - the "record" table where the
recording rules are stored does have a chanid field.  Normally, the
record.station field is used for matching channels to EPG data, but
there is likely something that will be using the chanid field, and
that will now not match.
