Antenna signal disappeared--a mystery! Help
Well if multiple devices are unable to find a signal, then I would definitely try calling the broadcasting stations and see if anything happened at that time when you lost the signal. Since it was during a show you should be able to narrow down the time easily enough. An antenna is so basic that it really shouldn't ever have problems, you could use a wire or coathanger and get a tv signal. If you have a second tv or a friend who can bring one over and test it with the antenna, then that will further narrow it down to which I believe the stations are out. We had a station out for 3 days up here once but the rest still worked. I've never heard of anything like this before. I could understand if one device can't find the signal. Stations don't always realize they aren't broadcasting until someone calls in. It wouldn't hurt anyway and I would be very interested to find out what is wrong once you get it working. The only other possibility is that you had a powersurge while you were gone or a power outage. Try resetting all devices by unplugging them (the tv for 8 hours). Also, did the Tivo continue to record when the signal was lost or does it seem like it was shut off, that would be a big indicator of what happened. Please update me on this, thanks and good luck
