The success/non-success warning in the backend status page (that you're
accessing via MythWeb) is useless/meaningless... Generally, it's only
when you have no (or a shrinking amount of data) that there's actually a

This was the correct thing to do--it says, "Put in all the data that
Schedules Direct has, replacing whatever's currently there."

and that's not something you want to do--it just says, "Feel free to
make dangerous changes to my channels which can prevent them from
working in MythTV." It's almost always the wrong thing to do.

That probably means you have a problem with your configuration (likely
your Video Source). It's quite possible that one of the
mythfilldatabase runs (such as the --do-channel-updates) caused it. For
example, you may have "shadow" channels that prevent you from seeing it.
I'd recommend you clean up your configuration to a blank state--doing
the Video Sources portion of
then re-create your Video Sources, re-Connect Inputs, rescan or refetch
channels (as appropriate, depending on your card type--noting that if
you use digital capture with any scannable input, meaning anything but
Firewire or CableCARD, you will need to scan and not use
mythfilldatabase/Fetch channels... to create the channels), then run
