    I am having problems with my Tivo Edge waking up, and Tivo sent me a replacement (reburbished). However, this new Edge does not get 2/3 of the channels I received on my old Edge as well as when I plug the antenna directly into the TV. This new refurbished edge receives the strongest channels 10 miles from my house; but not the less strong channels 35 miles from my house. I have an antenna rated to receive channels 50-60 miles from my house and the specs for the antenna shows that I should receie these 35 mile distant channels without any difficulty. Is it possible, for some reason, that this new box is attenuating the signal more than the old box when it splits the antenna signal among the 4 tuners?

    If you can argue that the previous Edge had no problems with reception but the "new" replacement Edge does and, that your TV tuner fed by the very same coax has no trouble receiving your normal stations, you should contact Tivo and arrange for another replacement.

    It makes sense that very weak stations might be harder to receive or may not be received at all by a four tuner unit compared to a TV or a 2 tuner Tivo. A two way splitter, - 3.5dB , four way splitter, -7dB.
