I was mistaken. I am getting data for those channels, it's just that 
mythweb is showing the wrong information. The programs are visible from 
the guide in mythfrontend. This seems to be something to do with having 
channels in the channel table marked with a date in the "deleted" field.

Thanks for your help.
