My locals moved to 61.5

According to EKB my HD locals here in Charlotte on 61.5 have finally been turned on, but my 722 keeps pulling them in from 118.7 even though I have a second dish pointing at 61.5. How do I force the receiver to switch over to 61.5? Or should I just disconnect the 118.7 feed from my switch? There is nothing on 118.7 other than my locals that I get from that bird anyway.

Also if I disconnect the 118 feed from my 1000+ antenna then it will only really be used for 110 and 119, so should I get it re-peaked or just leave it as is, or should I even get rid of the 1000+ and put a different dish in its place?

Well I found the answer was to just disconnect the 118.7 wire and do a check switch. Once I did that it relocked to my locals on 61.5 instead of 118.7. The big improvement now is that almost 100% of what I watch is on 61.5, so I no longer have as much delay waiting for my DP44 when I switch between local stations and nationals.
