    Night before last I hooked up my indoor antenna and scanned for locals. It found all the digital channels the the ATSC receiver on my JVC gets. But once I exited the menu, the added stations didn't show in the guide. I don't remember exactly what happened then but I ended on a some menu screen that I couldn't exit from. So I ended up just recycling power to the 622. When it came back up, the added stations were in the guide! Was I supposed to have to do that to get them picked up in the guide, or is there some kind of a soft reset that I was supposed to do? One other question--how can I delete a digital station that is now in the guide that I don't want?

    Thanks!

    If you do not subscribe to locals with Dish, you do not get locals in your guide, only Digital Programming or something similar.

    I do subscribe to locals. When I went back in the first time (before recycling power), all that showed were the ones that came from Dish. Now it shows those in addition to the ones I added. The ones that aren't part of Dish programming (subchannels and a couple low powered stations) do exactly what you say.

    You can delete the OTA channel from the same screen where you added them. If you delete the channel it will not be in the Guide.

    After you scan/add OTA channels they will not be in the Guide until the Guide data is loaded again. You can wait until the next day for the daily download or you can do a check switch test which will force a new download.
