My 411 receiver is forcing me to enter the password for the digital sub-channels that carry weather, traffic, etc, eg. in my area 4-02, 5-02, 8-02, etc. The main OTA channels, like 4-01 are included in the on-screen program guide with ratings that don't trigger the locks, but the -02 channels just show up as "digital service" in the guide, with a "NR/AO" rating, i.e. the same rating as the stuff that I really don't want my kids to watch. Is there some way to turn the locks off for the OTA digital subs without unlocking the whole system?

The strange thing is that my older 811 receiver doesn't have the same problem -- it applies the ratings locks to the satellite channels, but not the OTA ones. That made me wonder if there is a setting buried in the 411 menus somewhere that would let me turn off the locks for OTA. But so far I haven't figured out a way to do it.
