    My HD tivos single for 1 of my OTA channels has been going down and not any others, I rescanned my internal Tvs OTA tuner & I was able to get this channel back but not with the HD Tivo . I have tried rescaning with the HD tivo ( I have 2 HD Tivos and they both have lost this one channel all together) I have not tried to clear scanned off air channels , will ths get reid of the OTA channels all together? Then I can rescanned to pick them back up? I am in Atlanta Ga if anyone else has an HD Tivo are you getting this channel in?

    Thanks!

    I wanted to add that this channel has been find for 2 years .

    Check you antenna and make sure it's still aligned properly. If it's a UHF channel then you'd lose it if the antenna became misaligned since UHF antennas are highly directional.

    I would of thought this but my internal tuners on 2 different Tvs pick up the channel just fine, it seems the HD Tivo is not ( maybe mapping the channel for some reason) I am not sure how that works in the Tivo HD ota tuner ?

    How strong is this station you are trying to pull in? It's possible the internal tuner in your TV is does a better job of pulling in stations than your HD Tivo's do. (if you do a search many folks have posted that the HD Tivo's OTA tuner leaves a little to be desired)

    You could also be having local interfearance issues on that particular channel - again, your TV's tuner may do a better job at dealing with this thatn the HD Tivo's tuner.

    You may also want to remove the cover off your HR10-250 and check the connections from the internal OTA splitter and the two ATSC tuners. Remove and re-insert the RCA connectors to the splitter then make sure the connectors on the tuners are screwed in tightly. Some have found that these cables aren't seated properly.

    Also, you may want to spend a little time over at avsforum in the OTA local reception, the thread for your area.
