TTBOMK, they'll show either the callsign of the channel that now uses
the old channel ID or they'll show #chanid# (such as #1021#) if there's
no channel with that channel ID.
However, if that's really a concern, just hold off on changing things
around. There will be an update to mythconverg_restore.pl that does
channel fixes for exactly this reason. Even if you run -fixes, you'll
be able to use the trunk version of mythconverg_restore.pl, so as soon
as that's available, it will fix up all your channels for you (including
xmltvid's, visibility, etc.) for the channels themselves and fix any old
recordings or recording rules while it's at it.
