OTA Channels Will Not Delete

I have tried deleting ALL channels.
I have tried using the guided setup, it didn't remove the channels either.

I know I can "unselect" individual channels but I want to actually DELETE them from the channel list. Nothing works.

HELP!

You can't delete channels. All you can do is uncheck them in the channel list.

I want to start from scratch. Zero channels.

Are you telling me that TiVo populates my list with the channels I "might" get based on my Postal Code?

What about the extra channels I punched in to get during a Tropo event and now don't receive?

What's the sense of "Delete all Channels" if it doesn't do anything? I'm frustrated with my fantastic product!

Yes TiVo populates the channels list based on your zip code. If you don't get those channels then you can simply uncheck them in the channel list. That will make it so they are not used for search, the guide, channel surfing, etc... The only way you'll be able to access those channels in by entering their number directly.

TiVo populates the channel list with the channels you should or might be able to receive based on your ZIP code. It should automatically uncheck any that can't be tuned during setup. If it detects other channels, including any you might have tuned manually during a Tropo event, those are added but have no guide data. You can delete those added channels but not the original downloaded ones. The added channels have an asterisk beside the channel name in the listing.

You can't change all channels you get. You can change "My Channels" and "Favorites". What you need to do is change your guide to show only those either "My Channels" or "Favorites"

Press [Guide]->[A]-> change channels to other than [All]
