Delete all video sources resets the video source and input connections
Delete all capture cards (not Delete all capture cards on <hostname>)
resets the capture card configuration.
If those don't help then starting a new database won't, either--meaning
the problem that remains is that you've repeated the same
misconfiguration you had before the "Delete all..."

FWIW, if you end up taking this route, you should put the video files in
MythVideo directory with a good file name and let it do metadata
lookup. You would still have to change the file names, but it's the
only supported way of getting a video into MythTV.
