    OK this is really bothering me and really need some help
    I was helping out someone who has a HR24 and AM21 figure out what zip to load to get guide info for their missing channels (as the HR24 loads the database) so I put a bogus zip into my HR34 and got guide info.

    Now I can't get the "old" (bogus) guide data out of my HR34.
    -If the "bogus" market and my market match up with RF stations it shows bogus data for those channels only.
    -So as example I have 4 stations that have no guide data (not in the database) yet they show guide data for the bogus stations
    -the PSIP numbers dont even match up so on some channels I can't tune to them now. As example 2-1 is RF34 legit but the bogus its 43. If I tune to 2-1 I get an error
    -Another PSIP error is in my market its on 7-3 but uses RF45. The bogus uses RF45 too but is suppose to be 24-3 yet it maps to 7-3

    How can I get this back to just showing my market???

    -I have done a reset (of the antenna...the one below the "edit OTA channels") then did initial install. Put in ONLY my legit zip. Same problem. A few channels have wrong guide info
    -reset via antenna then did a red button reboot. Then did install. Same problem
    -did reset then under install put as primary and secondary zipcodes in my market...same thing
    -even tried a different zip that had only 1 station that matches my market...same issue

    The issue is if both markets use the same RF station (which are 43, 22, 45 and 29)

    HELP!!

    Doesn't two resets in a row clear out the guide data?

    I cant try that until later as I am recording shows but I guess I'll try that

    I tried a redo sat setup too (same issue)
    But one correction
    the PSIP numbers dont even match up so on some channels I can't tune to them now. As example 2-1 is RF34 legit but the bogus its 43. If I tune to 2-1 I get an error

    I was wrong. I tuned to 2-1 and it did show the right channel (just wrong info)

    The other thing I noticed is the callsigns show the old (bogus) ones

    so it shows
    2-1 bogus station
    2-2 bogus subchanel
    2-3 right subchannel
    2-4 right subchanel

    hopefully the double RBR fixes it

    If still not right, I suggest.

    Do a reset of off air channels again. So you have none.
    Unplug AM21 USB cable
    Reboot DVR
    It should have only SAT channels.

    Plug in AM21 USB cable and start off air setup again.

    Let us know what happens.

    Christopher's suggestion worked :)

    I reset the off air so it showed none
    double RBR
    then initial setup with my zip shows the right channels and guide info
