OK, not really Tablo's fault. The signal just dropped as far as I can tell.
I am 29 miles (SW) from the Chicago broadcast antenna. Historically (I've had SimpleTV and Tablo for years) the ABC 7 Chicago signal has been the strongest. However a little more than a month ago we realized the recordings of that channel stopped happening. So I checked and when I tried to tune to that channel all I got was the weak signal message. So I tried my SimpleTV (STV1...very weak tuner so I didn't expect much) and it complained about a weak signal too.
I bought a new amplifier for my antenna (in case the other one went bad)...nothing. I went up into my attic and checked my antenna and the direction it was pointing (had to adjust it slightly to point exactly 31 degrees)...nothing. Well...nothing for the ABC 7 Chicago channel. I did pick up new channels that use to not be there (not that I care about them).
I cannot necessarily blame my Tablo as my SimpleTV cannot pick up that channel either (though it was always bad at picking up signals).
Anyone in the Chicago area experience a problem with that channel since early Sept?
