I highly recommend the approach at
http://mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-23.html#ss23.7 , wherein you would
actually re-create capture cards, video sources, input connections, and
channels. But, it's the cleanest way to "start over" without losing
info on previous recordings.
If you try to carry over capture card/channel info, you may create more
problems than you solve (i.e. not be able to record new shows, so once
you fix transcoding, you could only transcode old recordings ;).
