    My living room Tivo has worked perfectly for years, then all of a sudden I am not getting serveral channels. They are black, no sound and I get an error message V 53. I have a premier Tivo in another room that has always shared the same antanna via a splitter and it still receives all channels.

    I searched this forum and found some suggestions (change channels on the other tuners) but nothing seems to work.

    I live in the SF bay area and channels 2.x and 36.x are the effected stations. I think these are sister stations and may be sharing the same transmission towers.

    edited to add: Fixed

    I have been out of the country for 3 months and just returned, so I didn’t know when this started. But I just noticed this effects close to half of my channels.

    Any ideas?

    I have the same problem. You edited "Fixed". Does this mean you figured it out? Could you share your experience? Thank you.

    Have you rescanned the channels? The FCC has been moving TV station frequencies for the 5G wireless rollout. Though doesn't explain why one TV still gets channels the other doesn't.

    Hi,

    Yes I rescanned the channels. Just to be sure, I just now did the channel cleanup and rescanned again. 11 channels like before. I should be getting 51 like on every other TV.

    Thank you for your reply.

    Mine was moved channels. for example I’m had two 2.1 channels. One worked (old) had to delete it and select the new 2.1 channel
