    I'm in the Philadelphia area, and today I noticed that on my Roamio OTA I was missing a few channels. Specifially 29-1 & 29-2. Oddly enough, 29-3 was still there.

    I have reset the box, and rescanned multiple times and it is STILL only picking up 1 of the 3 channels. What would cause this? Every other TV in the house is picking up all channels at 80%+. There is no reason to believe the Roamio can't see them.

    I really wish there was an option to force add a channel manually.

    If any of those televisions have diagnostics, you might compare the frequencies and sub-channel (program number). I don't see any indication that WTXF is involved with the spectrum repack. BTW, there should be a 29-4.

    TiVo channel scans do NOT function like a normal TV channel scan - their only purpose seems to be to totally screw up the selected channel list beyond all sane reasoning. Please do not ask why the TiVo channel scan is not really a channel scan - I don't think any human actually understands what it is doing. We all KNOW what it SHOULD be doing, but it just ain't so.

    Your problem is from a screwed up channel lineup in the TiVo mothership, and only they can fix it.

    Open a problem report and prepare to be upset.

    ...and just like that, this morning, the Roamio decided the channels were there all along and just decided to add them back. Good grief.

    WTXF (and subs) were just added to my lineup.
