Well, assuming the QAM tuners are tuning with their internal tuners
(i.e. using ATSC major/minor numbers) and the cable tuners are analog
encoders that use "frequency ID" (which is likely a channel number sent
to a channel change script that changes channel on an STB), you should
have 2 different video sources--because they tune channels differently.
(Video Source is a list of channels available on an input /and/
information about how to tune those channels.)
Note, also, that if a video source is connected to a digital input (and
only a digital input), mythfilldatabase should not attempt to add
channels to the video source (since it realizes that you need to scan
for those channels). So, if you have a single video source connected to
a digital (scannable) and analog (non-scannable) input, that probably
explains why it's trying to add channels to your QAM video source.

FWIW, --dd-grab-all has no bearing on whether channels will be added or
not. So, this may have been happening before, but testing --dd-grab-all
just made you notice it?
