|FunkyTown||The networks we have don’t care to spend money on OTA so it could be quite slow due to that. Growing up there was no cable TV. It was only antenna. Everyone had a tv with an antenna. Networks made their money from the commercials they played. We are so far from that now. However many people have cut the cord and they are streaming and using antenna which saves a lot of money each year. The networks hate this. They are used to getting so much revenue from cable. It’s the way things are going.|

|FunkyTown||That’s good I think considering digital is still new.|

|905shmick||I wouldn't hold my breath for anything having ATSC 3.0 for a long while. I would expect all current broadcasters to still be using 2.0 for at least the next 5 years if not longer.|

|FunkyTown||My thought is that it’s not a good time to buy a TiVo or any sort of tuner until they start producing machines that work with the current technology and the new ATSC 3.0. It’s annoying that they have to keep changing things. We were analog for decades and then went digital but now let’s compress the video further and force everyone to buy new electronics again. Then in a couple more years I imagine they’ll be out with ATSC 4.0 or they’ll be removing OTA completely due to everyone streaming online. It takes about 2 years to break even after you buy a TiVo due to the savings from a cable subscription. If you can get 2 years out of your tuner before the new technology cuts over then at least you’re not out anything, but you’ll need to fork out more dough for a new machine.|

ATSC 3.0 and OTA Roamio
Will this be an issue for us Canadians who own an Roamio?
I know that when stations convert that they have to have both ATSC 1.0 and ATSC 3.0 available simultaneously for five years but after that will us owners be at a loss?
Also, I read that when the CRTC asked OTA Canadian broadcasters if they will be upgrading their equipment again and the majority stated that it was very cost prohibitive and that they will take a wait and see approach. However, American OTA broadcasters were all for it.

|FunkyTown||It’s really a shame because the TiVo itself is a great piece of technology with lots of features that can’t be found elsewhere. It’s always been expensive but now with the decline in customer service I wonder how much longer they’ll be around.|

" ... hope they are not letting their customer service slip"
It's never been the same since Rovi Corp. bought Tivo in 2016 (and renamed themselves Tivo). I was a huge supporter of Tivo after I bought my 1st (and then bought a 2nd). Not anymore.

|FunkyTown||TiVo should be more on the ball and not leave this like that for weeks. I sure hope they are not letting their customer service slip. That’s always the start of companies failing.|

|DoubleYou||If you manually type in the real channel number, it will generally pop up on the channel list. I still have one station after the repack that is doing the same. I rarely receive the channel, but I seem to be having some nice tropo going on and have been able to watch it more than a couple times.|

|Jase88||With the recent channel repack, I'm once again at odds with Tivo and their slow support. Two weeks after the channel changes, and promptly reporting them to Tivo, and I'm still missing recordings and not seeing the guide reflect the new channel configurations. Oddly, CITS-DT Hamilton, which changed from channel 36 to 14, updated within hours on my Tivo. Other stations, not so lucky. I understand that Tivo is likely fielding a ton of requests right now regarding the over-the-air repack. Nonetheless, they could have been proactive and managed the changes much more smoothly. Hopefully the changes will be made soon.|

You could try this

I have lost a channel or two years ago but not lately. I would fill out the web form and within 2 weeks the channel would be back. I never had them reply saying they cannot add it. That is disappointing if it truly is a channel in your area. It sounds like someone just wants you to get lost. Maybe a bad employee. There was a lady named Margaret who you could contact via twitter at one time. I haven’t seen anything from her in a long while. The twitter address she used was @tivodesign and I found her helpful. You might try sending her a tweet to see if she can guide you. Maybe escalate to management. Or post something on their forum. I’d start with Margaret.
Let us know what happens.

|Jase88||I'm having a difficult time getting Tivo to re-add RF35 (CTV2 Hamilton 35.1) to my lineup. It disappeared several weeks ago and I've not been able to record or view programming on this channel. Anyone have some experience getting Tivo to fix these types of issues?! So far I've been using the web support tool and it's been a frustrating back-and-forth where they end up claiming that I can't receive this station (I most certainly can).|

|El Gran Chico||I have both. For IOS, I had to create a 2nd AppleID for US as my home but that was easy enough (it can be a pain to get updates - not totally seamless). Things may have changed for Android but I had no problen adding it a couple of years ago.|
