Unprogram direct tv from a tv

We have cancelled our direct tv service and sent the equipment back but the tv still seems to be programmed for direct tv.  Four local channels come up under dtv when you auto program the tv.  Can anyone help with this?  We are trying to program to use with an antenna.

the letters you're seeing next to some over the air channels simply mean digital TV (dtv) and NOT dtv for direct tv.

Not sure what you mean. Can you post a photo?

If you're using your TV's off-air antenna video source, then that should have nothing to do with any current or prior connected devices, like a BluRay player or DirecTV box.  Perhaps it's just a TV labeling thing?  Have you checked your TV owner's manual?
