    I receive 35 OTA channels fine and show up on the guide perfectly.

    I do not subscribe to cable....but two channels are clear Qam. They work fine and are in HD when connected to the TV.

    The Chanels are:
    48.71 Hallmark
    49.72. Hallmark movies & Mysteries

    I have the OTA line connected to the TiVo. I have the cable line connected to the TiVo. Those two channels do not show up on the TiVo.

    How can I get those two channels to show up on the TiVo?

    Thanks

    Tivo requires a cable card to map QAM channels. Required even if the channel isn't encrypted. Since the channels isn't encrypted there is a , small, chance an eBay purchased card might do the trick.

    Did you do your guided set up as OTA and cable?
