I live in Milwaukee Wisconsin. Just hooked up a HD10-250 in the Great Room. We receive our OTA CBS HD channels on frequency 46, channels 58-1, 58-2, 58-3, 58-4 and 58-5. 58-1 is typically the HD feed to watch the CBS programming. The new HD Tivo has a strange problem. When I tune to 58-1, the channel banner is displayed for the program being shown, but, then I get the message "Searching for signal: Antenna in". If I go to setup and check my signal strength it indicates a signal of 80+. If I go to channel 58-2 the channel banner displays the program that should be on 58-2, but, the program on screen is what is showing on 58-1. When I go to 58-3 the channel banner displays the program that should be on 58-3, but, the program on screen is what is showing on 58-2. The program guide is correct as to what the programming should be. It seems that the live programming is out of sequence. I have two other hd receivers in the house and neither receiver has this problem. I have plugged the HD Tivo receiver into a location that is working properly and I continue to get the same problem. I have also taken one of my other receivers and hooked it up in the Great Room and it works fine. Directv sent me a new HD Tivo and it has the same problem as the original. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Looks like bad guide data and/or the PSIP data stream is also messed up. Try a reboot.
DirecTV since '96, Waivers for ABC, CBS, NBC, & Fox, HR23-700 & HR24-500/AM21, using ethernet based MRV.

Try channel 1.1. The company that owns the station likes to play with the PSIP standard and puts their stations a remapped channel 1 (they do the same thing with WCIU-DT in Chicago).

See post My Setup for configuration info.

Channel 1.1 works except there is no channel guide information for 1.1. Makes it difficult to set up programming.
