It's been a while since I've watched any broadcast TV; our boob-tube fix has been coming in the form of tv series from Netflix. Cable/Sattelite are no longer cost effective, now that it's not included in the rent (the joys of home ownership -- $42/mo for BASIC CABLE? Nuts to that!). The Series 2 with lifetime got sold on eBay. Anyhoo, I picked up some rabbit ears from the Goodwill this afternoon. I get one channel pretty well, and 3 more not so well. Now that there's a tv source, I pulled the old un-subbed (but with a sw version that allows manual scheduled recordings) series 1 out of storage. Here's my problem: Sometimes TiVo refuses to tune in a station, instead giving me the blue can't display live tv screen. Frustratingly, this will happen even when the channel had just been coming in nice and clear (ie, switching from channel 6 to 8 back to 6). I've played with the RF smoothing (off seems to look marginally better), and after a lot of experimentation, I think i've found the best spot for my rabbit ears. Any other suggestions on how I can get the tuner to reliably tune in my one good station?
