I had a 622, and had no issues getting my local OTA channels to appear. I split my cable that runs to the OTA antenna into the tv as well as backup and it got the channels. Now ti Upgraded to the 722, and I noticed after scanning, that it does not pick up my local CBS station. Now that Dish offers all of our locals in HD, and with the various mapdowns etc, there are plenty of choices to record this. I'm curious about not getting it via the new reciever though. I double checked and went to the TV and viewed locals directly and it is still there.
