Can't Record Local Station

Since the purchase of my Tablo, I have been unable to record my local station which is 8 miles away but several station over 40!miles away record flawlessly. The Tablo says there is a poor connection which isn’t the case. Any ideas as to what the problem is? I saw a post from another person from the same city as me (Springfield, IL) that is also having the same problem.

Happen to be an NBC station?

It’s ABC.

Given how close you are to that station you could be getting too much signal. As a test unplug the antenna and replace it with a paperclip shaped into an L. You will likely lose all the other stations but this is just for testing. If you can pick up the 10 mile away station with the paperclip antenna then you are definitely getting too much signal.
