Crappy antenna signal? Or just no active account?

    Finally pulled the plug on TV & just have gigabit FiOS now. But started going down the rabbit hole on antennas but hitting a roadblock.

    I cancelled the TiVo service & was about to sell them on eBay. But after seeing nobody bite for $20, I started going down the rabbit hole & hooking up an antenna. It’s the black VOX model with 4 tuner. But it won’t pick up any channels, yet my 2017 Samsung QLED TV is picking up Atleast 5 channels. I know I need to get a better antenna. I ordered a clear vision fusion a week ago & it still hasn’t shipped yet.

    but anyone know why else it’s sucking? Is the TiVo just bad at receiving signals or are they screwing me because the TiVo doesn’t have an active account? The guide still works & it changes channels but has messages saying it can’t see the channel. Even a channel scan shows 4 channels after I put a cheap amp behind the TiVo but it still don’t show any picture.
