One of the major OTA channel works fine when I plug the antenna coax directly into my TV and use the TV tuner. However, I plug the same antenna into the Tivo and it says there's no signal.
What gives? Any suggestions as to what to try?

Thanks!

Tivo works differently than a TV. The guide is set to use a frequency for each channel and if the channel on the Tivo is blank, but you have a strong enough signal, or vice versa, then the guide was set to either an old or wrong frequency.

For that, you need to report it.

I have been working on signal strength also. I have sporadic pixelation on a few stations. My understanding is that because Tivo's have multiple tuners (4 tuners for my Bolt) that the signal gets divide between each turner. So I am looking into getting a Antenna Amplifier.
