Huh? Channels do not show up until I test signal strength.

    Totally confused! My cable went out last night (local outage as verified via phone). When I checked today no channels would come in so I called the cable company (I rebooted before and after calling them). They were of no help.

    So then I tested the signal strength. To my surprise it is high AND the channel shows up! Go to the guide and that channel that I tested shows up, but the rest do not. So then I test a few more channels and THEY show up then only AFTER testing the signal strength. So now I have to test EACH channel to get it to show back up. What the heck is this ???

    Have you tried pulling the cards and popping them back in? I've done that just playing around, and it doesn't seem to have any adverse effect. it may force Tivo to re-establish connection with the cards.
