I’m in Uxbridge, MA using a Tablo with an antenna in the attic. I’m getting all Boston stations (except 1) and most Providence stations as well. My antenna is pointed right at channel 38.1 (virtual), which had the weakest Boston signal for me the day I installed my antenna, which was months ago. I even get 2.1, by the way (WGBH actual channel 5). It’s a low VHF station, so I think I’m fortunate.
After re-scanning yesterday and today, I no longer see 15.1 or 15.2 (virtual channels). The folks over at the AVS Boston Antenna forum are saying that if I can get all of the other Boston stations, I should be able to see 15.1 and 15.2.
Here’s a quote from someone who is very knowledgeable over there on the repack, signal strengths and antennas:
“Something must be up with your Tablo if you’re not getting the WGBX signals at all, since they should be much stronger than many of the other channels where you are, WGBX has the following on their RF 32 signal:
2.2 GBH World
2.3 WGBH SD
15.1 WBTS HD (NBC Boston)
44.2 WGBX SD
44.3 GBH Create
44.4 GBH Kids”
Evidently, the old 15.1 is now being sent using WGBX’s signal.
I can get both 2.1 and 44.1, but none of the other 2 or 44 sub channels. In other words, I only get 2.1, not 2.2 or 2.3, and only 44.1, not 44.2, 44,3 or 44.4. Weird.
I’ve re-scanned 3 times today, once after hitting the blue ‘reset’ button on the Tablo. Is there something else I can try?
