    Hey Everyone! I have been an Roamio OTA owner for years. I decided late last year to upgrade to the Edge OTA. Sadly it has been a disappointment. Apps are not available, picture quality seems less than the OTA. Last month I lost signal on a local channel. In my troubleshooting I found my older OTA had no problem pulling in the channel. I jumped through all hoops with Tivo support. They decided the Edge had a bad Tuner. I received the replacement unit. My lost channel was working again... or so it seemed. 3 weeks later the channel starts randomly pixelating and now the signal is completely lost. Again the OTA is pulling a good signal.

    Signal on the Roamio is 67 so it's not like its borderline. When the channel was working it was 50 on the Edge. Obviously this could be a difference in metering between the two units. All the channels have a lower strength on the Edge. I will also add this channel is my only VHF channel.
    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Hmm could be a repack issue. I know one of the stations where I live moved there channel and then had to revert back right away due to interference with another station 80 miles away that used the same signal causing low to no signal at all. Now with that being said I don't think that is your issue if the roamio is picking it up fine. But a lot of the work on the repack is still going on and some is running very behind even prior to covid. You might actually need to adjust your antenna due to tower changes as well. Many in my area are putting up newer towers with larger transmitters.
