    Im trying to drop my directtv and go to just antenna. I live in a very rural area in northern Nevada and when I scan my channels I end up with about 10 or so unique ones but only 1 shows any guide information. If I get the channel why can't I get a guide to match? I've tried changing my zip code to one closer to salt lake but it just get worse.

    As you probably have guessed, TiVo guide data is grouped by zip code. I think the best you can do is pick a zip code that is close the greatest number of the channels you receive. If you don't know where your channel antennas are located try one of these:

    Wrong answer.

    TiVo will create a unique channel lineup for you (at least they have in the past), just like they've done for people in apartment buildings that use satellite dishes as the basis for an in-house cable system.

    Tell them your set of channels and your zip, and if they hold to form, they'll give you a specific OTA lineup for your immediate area. (In the past, it's taken a few days.)

    Did you rerun Guided Setup telling TiVo that you are antenna only?
