My local PBS station is completing their repack assignment, and since they made (or started?) the transition, my tablo is unable to pick up the signal anymore, although other OTA devices I have work fine. The station in question is WPBT-DT in West Palm Beach. Antennaweb has the following to say:
Ch 2.1 PBS is part of the FCC TV spectrum repack. The below table highlights information regarding how the station is affected.

It’s going from a UHF to UHF (494MHz to 560MHz, if you believe wikipedia), so theoretically the problem shouldn’t be related to antenna type (though I have VHF as well and pick up plenty of other UHF and VHF stations), and if I simply pull the coax out of my tablo and plug it into my TV, I’m able to tune the station after a rescan.
My channel guide on the Tablo is up to date, and doesn’t offer much in the way of additional information. Is there some tool or debug mode I can enable to see what frequency the Tablo thinks it should be tuning, and what the relative signal strength is?
