    Local CBS station (3-1 KIMT) for south east minnesota and north iowa apparently changed frequency in the last week. First 3-1 showed up twice in the channel list as 3-1 KIMTCBS (old) and 3-1 KIMTDT (new). One had the picture/sound while the other had the guide information. Ran guided setup with different zip codes in the coverage area and then again with the correct zip code. After this the 3-1 KIMTCBS is gone and I'm left with 32% signal on 3-1KIMTDT. Never had reception issues with 3-1 KIMT in the past year (always 80% plus). Does TiVo have the correct frequency for the change? Diagnostics show 533. I'm planning to call the station to double check the new frequency Monday. Any other possibilities? 3-1 can be viewed perfectly on another TV without TiVo on the same antenna. TiVO customer service was no help and frustrating. Thanks

    Yes, I have the same thing on one or 2 of my channels. They did their frequency change and now it is only clear sometimes.

    Station said they've been unable to switch to a new antenna and frequency due to bad weather. TiVo removed the old channel from the list. Hopefully they can add it back to the list until the station completes their change over.

    I have called Tivo tech support several times about this issue. It seems to me that they need to update their programming to match the new channel lineup for KIMT 3.1/3.2/3.3/3.4 on Channel 24 vs 42. I can get the channel on KIMTCBS but the program info from Tivo is on KIMTDT. They (Tivo) seem to think I am nuts. How do we get this fixed?!?!
