Don't know if this is just a terminology error or if you actually did
something bad, but the channel ID's are /not/ user-editable data. They
also have no bearing on listings data.
The xmltvid's are user-editable fields which specify which listings data
should be associated with which MythTV channel.

You can run mythfilldatabase --refresh-all to force it to refresh. If
you edited channel ID's, above, I /highly/ recommend you clean up the
mess with the video sources portion of
which you'd need to run mythfilldatabase--but since the process will
clear out the old/incorrect listings, you won't need the
--refresh-all). If, instead, you had just edited xmltvid's, just re-run
mythfilldatabase with the --refresh-all argument.
