    Using the Tivo Antenna Signal Strength tool from the Channel Settings menu displays the frequency of the tuned channel.

    The asterisk means the channel was scanned in and is not in the database

    Tivo has done this a few times where they change the RF station in their database early. In Minneapolis they did it 6 months early. KSTC (Minneapolis) is in Phase 3 which starts Saturday and Tivo changed the RF station incorrectly back in October. (a lineup change fixed it in a day)

    No fix so far. At Tivo support's recommendation I power cycled and then forced a network conection. Did not work. I'll try that again in the morning.

    I did a rescan and the current, working 42-1 is now available. Granted, my roamio has no clue what’s on that channel but at least I can watch it now.

    Not one thing has changed since this started. I've always been able to scan and get a second 42-1 that I can watch without program guide.

    power cycle will do nothing. Its the force connections that will update the database but note if it doesnt update right now, redoing a force update in 2 minutes wont change it. Try later in the day and maybe that will fix it.

    Just did a force connection and now everything is good. KEYE is back with programming guide intact.

    Been a week of Tivo issues. Yesterday we had network connection trouble - iPad got an error trying to connect to either Tivo. Finally, had time to look at it today and found the Tivos were not able to see the router. They told me so when I tried to force a connection. First step, power cycle the ethernet switch that is in the cabinet with the Tivos and all the other video gear. Problem solved, good connection now.

    My wife asks, "How would I watch TV at all if you weren't here?" My response, "You wouldn't have all this stuff. You'd have cable, a cable DVR and cable modem and call them when it broke." Life is better with me.

    Better words have never been spoken!

    I hear that from my wife all the time.

    It's good to be alive in order to be "tech support".

    So...months later, I'd like to know how KEYE is tuning in for all of us. At my house near 2222 and 620 where I have direct line of sight to the Westlake antenna complex (8 miles away), it is a crapshoot with my Roamio OTA. Sometimes it's fine, but a LOT of the time I get dropouts, pixelation, etc.
    How about the rest of you? I'm using a massive Winegard indoor antenna and every other station is rock-solid 24x7.

    Well, even more months later, I am still having issues with KEYE on my Tivo Roamio OTA. This morning the Tivo guide showed "no data available for" KEYE and another station. I forced a Tivo connection. This resulted in no change to the guide's content. I live near I-35 and Southpark Meadows. My Tivo setup is similar to yours, small flat panel antenna indoors and a ChannelMaster amplifier. Like you, signals on my Tivo are solid for all channels EXCEPT KEYE. KEYE's middling signal performance has only been a problem since the April, 2019 repack. It appears that KEYE has a technical issue that they are incapable of recognizing or fixing. FYI, I also have Spectrum cable service and KEYE's signal there is occasionally pixellated.

    If your OTA channels get pixelated occasionally, like mine does, I think its interference and there is nothing to do about it.

    Before they changed to the new frequencies, the digital signals were flawless.

    Just got an Edge unit and it is so much better than the Roamio. Every station that had problems (KEYE and Fox7) is now flawless and that's with a rinky-dink antenna on the ground floor whereas the Roamio is on a big ol' Channel Master on the second floor. Go figure....
