    If they're all 72%, that's the AGC (Automatic Gain Control) clamping the input down.

    If the TiVo wouldn't reboot changing channels on the Signal Strength Meter
    ( Bolt rebooting at Antenna Signal Strenth attempt )

    You'd see it start at a higher level and clamp down to 72%.

    It's still broke with 21.9.7. My signal strength meter on my OTA is stuck at 72. Channels I don't even get also show 72. Those channels should be at 0.

    I have the same on my Bolt OTA. With foliage on the trees now need to realign antennas, much easier when you can see signal strength. Considering it once worked, I would think this shouldn't be a big deal for software engineers to fix.

    I have the same thing. If you go to Accounts and System/Diagnostics, you can see the ‘true’ signal strength for the channel. I have one channel at 55% and the other 3 at 72%.
