Just got the H10 receiver and HD package from DTV. For local channels in HD the receiver did a scan to bring in the local channels. There is also a secondary scan. What do I do with that scan? Should I scan another local city or the same city as the first scan? Anyt suggestions?

If you are close enough to another TV market (i.e. another city) then go ahead and try scanning that cities channels. You might pickup some more channels if you have a good enough antenna. However, keep in mind you'll probably just pick up more of the same. In other words, you'll get another NBC, CBS, etc. with the same shows. The commercials might be different (if that's of interest)
