    8/13/20 I am on my 6th--yes 6th--Bolt in 12 months. I installed this last one a few days ago. It is setup properly (I've had Tivos for 20 years and know what I'm doing), streams well, runs with an antenna fairly well, but when set up for cable only I get no picture or audio. I get the message...
  2. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    I have been having pixelation and audio skips/freezes on one channel. 747 MSNBC through spectrum charter cable. It’s been going on for weeks. The spectrum cable man came out today and checked our connections and signal strength. Everything looked great. He suggested that the issue lies with the...

    Hi, I have a Tivo Bolt OTA with a Clearstream Antenna and a Juice preamp. It has worked flawlessly (mostly) for years. Suddenly, the other day, I was watching an OTA station and got a v52/v53 Loss of Signal. Out of 51 channels. I get 11. The coax connector on the back of the Bolt is very warm...

    My living room Tivo has worked perfectly for years, then all of a sudden I am not getting serveral channels. They are black, no sound and I get an error message V 53. I have a premier Tivo in another room that has always shared the same antanna via a splitter and it still receives all...

    I just hooked up my TiVo Roameo after moving and I had an OTA antenna hooked up with a very strong signal. Comes in just fine into television but the TiVo gives me the v53 error. I have re-scanned for channels and restarted the TiVo box but nothing seems to help. Any suggestions?
  6. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    I'm gathering more data and suggestions for helping my parents troubleshoot their TiVo Bolt Vox. Unfortunately they are in Kansas, and I am in California, so I'm trying to get as many ideas as I can ahead of a lengthy phone call. They're using an OTA-only configuration with all their wiring...

    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...

    I am trying to figure out what I can do to get certain channels working again. On Fox Sports North, The Olympic channel from NBC, NBC Sports, the CW, and my local PBS station all come up with an error V53. I have exchanged cable cards several times, restarted the box, had Comcast to come and...

    I have an over the air antenna, and for 3 yrs my system has worked fine. Tonight, watching a local channel, the video started breaking up....and then the dreaded v53 error message popped up. I tried restarting my unit (a series 5) and no difference. While I was checking the community forum...

    Recently updated Bolt and 2 Minis to Hydra. Main Bolt works fine but mini all of a sudden is getting V53 Channel Not Available error. Tried verifying cables, reboot (hard and soft) and replacing cables/connections although it was perfectly fine before the upgrade and nothing has changed. Need...

    I bought one of the Roamio OTA models and picked up the cablecard bracket on Ebay, but am having no success in getting started. Every channel is coming up with a V53 error. I have a FIOS motorola cablecard (have gone through a few) that I can see the parameters for in the cablecard info...

    I received a brand new Roamio, but after getting a cablecard from Verizon, I'm not getting any picture and see a V53 error on all channels. I can see the Tivo home screen and when I go to Settings>Network Settings I see Tivo Service Connection has succeeded. All of the channels are showing a...
  13. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    Is there any way to disable individual tuners on the Bolt? I've just purchased a Bolt and am getting a V53 error on just one tuner. The other three tuners work fine. My instinct is that it's a bad tuner on the Bolt, but I'm not sure I have the time and patience to deal with the calls to both...

    I have been experiencing a issue with my Bolt. It started making a little bit of a clicking/scratching sound. Perhaps the fan is going out? However when this noise is happening the Bolt freezes up, and stalls and will show the error message "problem with signal on this channel v53". Called...

    I have a number of OTA channels that report an error accessing a signal - V53. Does anyone know what that error really means? The channel was found when the Tivo scanned for channels. And if I put the antenna signal strength meter on, the channel connects to digital content, and has a signal...
  16. TiVo Premiere DVRs
    The latest update was a disaster for my two boxes. I only use an antenna. The update added dozens of non-existent channels to my line up. The line up for the channels that DO exist is often wrong. Tivo expects me to tell them what the right line up is for a channel, with examples of missing...

    I am not a technical person, so bear with me - I really need your help!! I have a Roamio OTA. I ONLY get channels OTA via a roof long-range antenna. For the last 10 days or so (estimate) I am getting the dreaded V53 error on many channels (all, really, at one time or another). I have had my...

    I have had an old Tivo box for 7+years with no issue. I just switched my main tv to the OTA Amazon special box, set up went great, watched tv for 2 nights and now our NBC channel gives a v53 error. Weird thing is - the main NBC channel shows come in on an off channel (5-3) but the guide does...

    Hello! I am currently having an issue with my TiVo Roamio and I was hoping I could get some advice. I have the basic Roamio (not OTA version) and use an antenna to receive my programming. For some reason recently, my channels 34-1 and 34-2 have moved to 34-3 and 34-4. When I check the signal...
