Not if you are on the supported version of MythTV
(i.e. fixes/31) where the channels are marked
"deleted" (and removed/cleaned up when the last
reference is deleted).  This was implemented by
gigem for fixes/31 (it is buried in the release notes).

If you want to go that way, there is a 3rd party
tool MythUtil-Channel-visibility (documented on
the wiki) that uses the services API that can
update all the channels in a videosource as
(in)visible, but I think in your case you would
want to just delete the videosource.
