TiVo OTA reception much worse than TV reception
January 16, 2019
For the major networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS) I was getting signal levels from 67-95% with my antenna on the TV directly. However with the Tivo, CBS was only 37% and frequently unwatchable, so I had to return. All channels were on average 25% weaker with the Tivo OTA tuner. Found posts on the TivoCommunity.com forum from many with same issue, and that after the series 3, the OTA reception went down hill due to several factors, including that multi tuner has to split the signal 4 ways. Weaknees recommended antenna amp, which I tried, and made no difference. Disappointed that the Tivo tuner hardware is not as good as the tuner in my 10 year old Panasonic plasma.
