Well first up to bat is the Premiere.. Been playing around with it and I'm very confused. I got a ota antenna that goes "IN" in the antenna of the tivo. The verizon coaxial is "IN" in the cable of the tivo and "OUT" to the tv. No cable card. When I first did the set up, I chose ANTENNA only, then I did channel scan it got over 1000 channels. Of course they don't all work. Channels would show up like this.. 2.1 ANT 2.1 Cabl. The channels with the "Cabl" label would show up, whereas the channels with the ANT were blank and had the tivo V52 thing.
Can someone explain what I was seeing? Why did the channels labeled Cabl tune in while the ones saying ANT didn't. But that's not the confusion, the confusion is when I decided to run the set-up again, this time choosing both Cable and Antenna and selecting "I will not be using a cable card." Just for the heck of it. I wanted to see if we can tune in some cable channels. I know Fios doesn't work that way, you can't even get basic cable like Charter, they absolutely force you to have a card or a box, but I wanted to try anyway. But during this set-up, I believe my premiere got a firmware upgrade or something because the interface all of a sudden looked like my Roamio. It no longer finds over 1000 channels, it dropped to just over 700. And all the channels labeled "CABL" were gone. Before I would get 2.1 ant, 2.1 cabl, 4.1 ant, 4.1 cabl, and so on. But now all the cabl ones are gone. And the ANT ones are black screen with the V52 thing.
Can someone explain?
