When I moved to the sqlite version, a new video source is added, and hence the source id had to change in the channel table. In my case, the old nonsqlite version had sourceid of 4 and after the sqlite version was added, the source id for it was now 6.    So updated the channel table to reflect the change.

Wow. I'm not clear as to what you did there, but I just went into
mythtv-setup and changed the grabber on the existing source, which is
still the only one I have. As noted in another reply, I used a SQL
command to change the xmltvid fields on the channel table to the
format expected by the sqlite grabber and everything worked fine.
