How to clean up all of the channels

I had a problem with my physical ch36 gradually not working on all tuners( I have 8 ). I had over 100 channels that were showing in guide->channel manger that were left over from all of the FCC channel reallocations and trying to scan a cable system. I "assume" the channel scanner was getting confused even though I did a full channel scan on each tuner.

To fix: I installed sagetv on a different computer and got a clean avalilable here:

I now shut down sagetv and disabled all sagetv services. I used the installed and using notepad copied and every line starting with N to the end of the file and replaced every line starting with N to the end of the file in the clean I renamed the installed and copied the now modified clean to the sagetv directory.

This left the old channels completely wiped out but all of my settings and plugins were ok. I reinstalled the tuners and did a full channel scan on each one. All of my tuners were now working perfectly. My EPG data all looked good.
