Got the 921 installed, updated and activated. Did a DTV OTA channel scan and after some initial lock issues and several reboots I'm able to lock on everything broadcasting from Chicago except DT-52 (our ABC station). However, doing a manual 'Add DTV' for this channel the guide shows signal of 117-120, plus shows 52-1 as the channel but it still won't add it to the channel list.

Also there are 2 other DT channels and their respective subchannels that are causing duplicate entries and I cannot remove them or tune them in WGN 75-1; 75-2 and WCIU 1-1. I've tried disconnecting the OTA antenna, rebooting and scanning, but even then these two anomalous OTA channels remain in the program guide...I'm running out of ideas here.

The problem seems to be two-fold, in terms of both an issue with the way the 921 handles unusual PSIP information, and an issue with the OTA channel database and how its managed.
