    I have a Tivo Premiere. I am currently using over the air channels only.

    I recently upgraded my antenna situation. When I ran channel scan it picked up a few channels that I did not receive before.

    Unfortunately my Tivo is now showing guide information for every single channel that I receive over the air. Even the channels I would never watch.

    I went into channel list and removed the channels I do not want. But they still show up in guide anyway.

    I manually connected to the Tivo service. That did not help anything.

    I waited overnight for the Tivo to make its scheduled connection to the Tivo server. That did not help anything.

    Anyone else having this problem? How can I fix this?

    You could go through the channels list and give each channel you want a :up:, which will mark that channel as your favorite. Next, go to Live TV, press the On-Screen Guide, then Enter for the options. There should be a setting for Channels that shows either of these, 'ALL', 'You Receive', 'Favorites'.... Right/left arrow to Set to Favorites, and back down to save.

    I had the same issue. I did the following:

    • Hit "Live TV" button if you're not already watching live tv
    • Hit the "Guide" button
    • Hit 'enter' button
    • Go down to 'Channels' option and change from "ALL" to "You Receive"
    • Go back up to "Done changing options" and hit Select key.
    • Scroll up and down to make sure your channels are now gone.
    • Hit "Guide" button to return to live tv
