Last attempt before I reconnect cable. For almost a year, my set-up was excellent. Mohu Leaf 50 is window-mounted & connected to 4-tuner Tablo; Tablo is Ethernet connected to router; wifi to 3 tvs with Roku 3s. With the connection of a new Tablo, I lost the local ABC & CBS affiliates, provided by the same company, and sharing a tower 12 miles from me. Both tuned in perfectly on the old Tablo, which they graciously replaced due to a faulty USB connection & loss of ability to record. Here are all the unsuccessful solutions attempted:
I can use a $12 antenna & tune in those channels on any tv in the house, but cannot get them through my Tablo.
Replaced the hard drive, with the former diagnosed to be the culprit due to frequent disconnects, even with the new Tablo.
I’ve rescanned at all hours of the night & day, under every weather condition for 2 weeks.
Scanned from my iPhone app, which I’ve always done, and my computer.
Moved the antenna to multiple different locations.
Disconnected the antenna amp & direct connected antenna to the Tablo. Without the amp, I get only 3 stations, but not the two nearest.
Left the amp connected, but buffered it through a splitter.
Talked with the local tv network engineer & confirmed they’ve made no changes. Also, he says overamping rarely/never happens at >3 miles.
Tried local engineer’s suggestion to use a splitter and point an additional antenna directly toward their tower, leaving my initial one as-is.
Replaced the coax cable to my antenna.
Tried 4 additional models of antennas, each of which picks up less than my Mohu & none of which gets the now-missing ABC & CBS. May get banned for life from Best Buy when I return all of them…
I think it’s something internal to the new Tablo, as that is all that changed when I lost my two most-desired channels, but the Tablo tech remotely accessed my unit & diagnosed weak signal for those stations. But…I’m picking up weaker stations with towers 20-50 miles away.
If you tech-savvy fellas have any additional suggestions, obviously I’m willing to try most anything. I’d be delighted to ship a box of Tennessee Goo Goo clusters to the person who can resolve this.
