I bought a Tablo OTA lite in May '19 and have not used it much as I could not get it to receive ANY of the channels on nearby mountaintop regardless of antenna, etc. But things have changed: There was a fire on the mountain tower and replacement, repack, and got a new Sony TV. Got a new outdoor antenna with amplifier and just set it inside and wow, got a ton of channels on the Sony. Am hopeful to get even better when I mount it outside. Ok, sorry for the shaggy dog story. So… I dig out the Tablo and hook it up to the same antenna that worked with the Sony. Scan for channels. I CANNOT get WCAX at all on Tablo.
According to FCC, WCAX is 6 miles from us; RF Channel: 20 RX Strength: 93 dbuV/m Tower Distance: 6 mi; Direction: 306° Repacked Channel: 20 Repacking Dates: 10/19/2019 to 1/17/2020.
Antenna I’m using now: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07ZGC6RH7/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
What tips does anyone have in this situation?
Turn Gain UP/DOWN on the Vanskey?
Add a LTE filter?
Muck with the direction and location of the antenna?
But this begs the question: Why is Sony TV able to get 33 and 3 where Tablo can’t? Also, channel 5 is supposed to be available but neither Sony nor Tablo get it.
