    I live in the Dallas area. One channel is listed as 47-1 on the Tivo HD, but 46-1 on the TV. The TV picks it up correctly while the Tivo just gets a blank channel. When I check the signal on the channel, it is fine, but no picture is shown. I think this is because it is looking for 47-1 instead of 46-1. (It is odd numbering.)

    Any ideas how I can get the Tivo HD to find this channel? The TV finds it just fine, but it is not found when I have the Tivo HD scan for channels.

    Did you try doing a antenna scan? On my tivo hd channel 30.1 is the same as 31.3. I dont know why that is.

    I did an antenna scan and it did not find it. It found a bunch of other analog channels and one digital that doesn't have sound, but not 46.1. :(

    I did an antennaweb.org search on the 75201 area code saw no channel 47. KJJM-LP is using analog channel 46.

    Is this one of those Texas things where 'Dallas area' means it's only 80 miles away? The digital stations listed by antenna web are WFAA, KMPX, KERA, KDFW, KTVT, and KXTX.

    My zip code would be 75043, Garland. That is well within the Dallas area and my Vizio HD TV picks the channel up just fine with its tuner. Tivo HD gets something on 47.1, with a signal strength of >90%, but no picture. It doesn't find the 46.1 channel the TV can show just fine.

    You are correct that that site doesn't show it, though the Tivo HD expects it to be 47-1. I suspect it is a very local channel, possibly out of Christ for the Nations, which is located just south of downtown Dallas.
