AM21 Off Air Tuner Bug? with primary and secondary markets
Posted 28 July 2012 - 02:33 PM
If you go to the Edit Off-Air Channel List, you'll find the secondary duplicate channel doesn't exist. Example: 4-1 (WCBS primary market) and 4-1 (WNBC secondary market)
when you go to your guide, both channels will appear.
The only way to remove the channel is to use favorites

Re-run the full OTA setup 2 or 3 times, including full resets/"initial setups" that clear all channels. Eventually, the AM21 will get the listings right, and will be consistent between the on-screen guide and the OTA channel listing. Others (including me) have reported this problem with the AM21.

Similar problem with most TVs, by the way; if you have two 4-1s in the channel list, and you key in 4-1, which channel do you think you should get?
I think if you delete the "primary" zip code, so you only have the stations from the secondary one, including the station you want to delete; then delete it, then add in the primary zip code, you will get what you need.
