    check the signal levels,
    if that is ok, you may have an issue with multipath signal
    the same signal is received slightly offset in time.
    Having 2 different antennas makes this worse.

    first try to point to ony ABC station with one directional antenna
    and see if you can get the station.

    ps what is the frequency of the station VHF, UHF ???

    Tivo Bolt signal meter does not work. Shows 74 on all channels even those I dont get.
    Had same problem with single CM stealthtenna very aggravating.

    The Signal % shown in Diagnostics works. Just scroll to the channel & tuner.

    From Help, Account & System Information, Diagnostics:
    ch502-1.JPG
    This is cable, so I usually have 90%. Scroll down to find your channel/tuner. Program Number is the sub-channel.

    This is a "Known Issue" and can be seen at -> Tivo Customer Support Community

    The numbers are dynamic.

    I have gone into diagnostics signal strength 72% vs another channel with no issues at 60%. Added LTE filter no improvement
