    After upgrading my hopper to a hopper w/sling I just plugged my OTA module into the new box and scanned for local channels. Then I went back to delete the unwanted channels and the delete option is greyed out. It also shows 0 signal strength even though I'm getting a very good picture. I'm pretty sure this is how I did this on my old box. Does anyone know how to do this ? Thanks

    Those two features have not yet been enabled in the software.

    Actually, before S244 you could delete OTA channels, but that feature is broken at the moment.

    Thanks, I knew I did it before somehow. I figured I was just forgetting to do something to get it to work.

    I don't think this is a bug... I think someone may have decided (wouldn't be the first time) that "customers don't use this feature" and took it away. I could be wrong... but when a feature that used to exist goes away, I lean towards it being intentional rather than a bug.

    You most likely need S311 which is for HWS.

    thomasjk, You were right. Software update S311 downloaded last night and I can now delete the unwanted local channels again.

    Too bad "Add Locals" still hasn't been turned on as of S311.
