    I had a Bolt with an upgrade 2TB hard drive on it that just died. I don't believe it's a problem with the hard drive because I put the original hard drive in the Bolt and had the same problem with it getting stuck at the Starting Up screen. I am thinking of ordering a new Edge for Antenna but...
  2. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    I have a Tivo Bolt (TCD849500) which currently runs with Spectrum Cable. I will be canceling cable and returning the CableCard and Tuning Adapter to Spectrum. Will I be able to run my Bolt with an HD Antenna instead? If so, what else would I need (eg: do I need to buy a CableCard)
  3. TiVo Premiere DVRs
    I own a TiVo that identifies itself as a "Series 4". It is a 2 tuner model that has 2 coax inputs on the rear panel, one for cable and one for antenna. Can I do cable with the cablecard and antenna at the same time? I will ending my cable subscription at some point and will just use the...
  4. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    I live in the Chicago area about 25 miles out from the city. I have the Tivo Bolt OTA and ClearStream 2MAX antenna along with the ClearStream Juice preamp. Everything is working normal and reception for all scanned channels works fine except for one, WMAQ-DT (Digital) Channel 29 (5.1) NBC. I've...

    I currently have a TiVo Vox with two TiVo Vox minis on FiOS. I was curious if it’s possible to add the TiVo roamio with my HDTV antenna and be able to have the other TiVo Minis switch between the Roamio and the Vox to view content. I’d like to be able to record OTA programs not available on FiOS...
  6. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    I have a 4-tuner TiVo Bolt, 1TB capacity. Currently I have it connected to digital cable with a Cable Card, but if I were to cut the cord, would I be able to use that TiVo to record from an antenna? I've searched Google, and this forum, but every time I enter "antenna" or "OTA" into the...
  7. TiVo Roamio DVRs
    Been having problems with my Roamio losing channels and ones I do get sometimes breaking up. Spoke to one of their techs and he said I need an antenna that can deal with the multiple tuners, but he couldn't recommend one. Can any one suggest a digital antenna that will work well with the TiVO?
  8. TiVo Roamio DVRs
    I have a Roamio Plus (TCD848000). I’ve used for years with a cablecard, now cutting the cord. Am I reading this forum right that my TiVo can’t be used with just an HD antenna in the coax jack but no Cablecard? Is there any workaround? Or any alternative to either buying a new TiVo or giving up...

    It helps to know WHAT stations to expect and WHERE they transmit from, before you install! The FCC offers this basic calculator: DTV Reception Maps But this site returns a VERY useful MAPS and more info! DTV Gov Maps DTV Gov Maps gives you the digital TV tower signal data and maps you need...
  10. TiVo Coffee House - TiVo Discussion
    The Topic: HD ANTENNAS from the connector to the metal in the sky! There are volumes written about HD Antennas and my comments are made with a rather 'broad brush'. It's easy to quibble and take potshots, but constructive comments and questions help so much more! The FIRST thing you should...
  11. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    Hello World! I want a divorce from Spectrum Cable, and do not want to repeat the mistake with a similar provider. Here is what I'm hoping to find in my next relationship: * antenna for local stations. Per TVFool, I will need a rooftop antenna to get PBS and CBS; ABC and NBC are "green,"...
  12. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    I have a TiVo BOLT and a MoCa setup to feed my TiVo mini. Neither of these is directly connected to modem or router but there IS a bridge and it all works well. Now, Spectrum has jumped from $70 to $100 and now $121 for TV and internet and I am tired of it. I can live with antenna TV (Sorry...
  13. TiVo Help Center
    I have read a number of threads and can't find one that addresses my exact configuration. See attached diagrams for details: Current Setup: Rooftop OTA Digital Antenna Dedicated Coax runs for OTA (Roof -> Basement -> Amplifier -> Splitter -> TVs in 2 rooms (FR, MBR) DSL Modem and Wireless...
  14. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    My current setup is a Tivo Bolt with a cable card getting Spectrum TV. And my Roku is hooked up to my router. Only 1 TV in the house so I don't need to get the signal anywhere else. I finally found an antenna that will pull in all my local stations (Los Angeles) really well. So I'd love to...

    I moved into a house back in July with an outdoor antenna. It's been working perfectly with my Tivo Roamio since then, but then we had the polar vortex and now things aren't so great. At first the reception would break up constantly (I thought it might be due to the high winds) but last night I...

    This thread applies to TiVo users running Premiere DVR's with Software 20.7.4 and receiving their programs via over-the-air antennas. Many of the FAQ's also apply to Roamio and Bolt DVR's with antennas. But if you have information to add, specific to Roamio or Bolt, please start a new thread...
  17. TiVo Help Center
    The reason I am asking is because I am having problems pulling in strong signals that are only 13 miles away. Of course TiVo says it is my signal. But I have tried 3 different antenna and have purchased a cable coax tester to make sure all the lines are good. I have not had any success in...
  18. TiVo Help Center
    My antenna pulls in stations from two directions (some stations north north and all stations south) and when my TV scans - it recognizes all stations and lists them in the guide. Some of my neighbors have combined two antennas with a reverse splitter and get all north and south stations...
  19. TiVo Roamio DVRs
    I've posted in a few other threads but figured I'd get my experience in it's on thread to keep from cluttering up the other threads too much. We have been with DISH for 10-15 years and finally have decided we've made them rich enough. Suffice it to say that we are attempting to "cut the cord"...
  20. TiVo Roamio DVRs
    Cutting the cord sure takes a lot of research! The best intel I found for Roamio OTA was johnpowers post (very similar setup). Thank you for that...and I could really use an expert review. I have attached my diagram. The bottom line is that I'm trying to feed 3 TVs with a rooftop antenna and...
