Its been so long since Ive changed anything I have a couple questions:
1: Can I tune cable and antenna at the same time with the TivoHD, or just one or the other like the base Roamio?
2: If I can tune either antenna or cable, will rerunning guided setup to add in the antenna cause me to lose the pairing on the cablecard?
3: If I cannot tune both at the same time, will rerunning guided setup to switch from cable to antenna erase the pairing on the cablecard should I want to switch back to the cable?
Sorry for the dumb questions, but between DirecTv and the newer Tivos, Ive totally forgotten about the TivoHD.
Hook the OTA antenna to the antenna input of the TCD652160.
Go into Messages and Settings, Settings, Channels, and select Channel Scan.
It should find whatever OTA channels you can get on that antenna without messing up your already set up cable channels.
Those channels should get automatically added to the guide data, but you can go into Channel List instead of Channel Scan to edit the list.
In fact, check the list first, TiVo probably already included the OTA channels it thinks your ZIP Code should get, they just aren't "checked" in the list to make them show up.
