Still trying to come up with the best solution here for DVR'ing OTA...
For some reason I have to keep no less than 20 db of attenuation on the antenna lead in to my Roamio OTA to prevent intermittent breakup particularly on RF ch. 13 (KCOP). But then this amount of attenuation causes my UHF channel levels to suffer.
And whenever it rains like this the UHF channels "really" go down to the point of many totally unusable now. So I have to remove the attenuator when it rains which brings the interference to RF ch. 13 back .
Going to try separating the UHF band from the VHF with a UVSJ and then recombine them with the 20 db attenuator only on the VHF side before feeding into the TIVO to see if that will do the trick. This will still make low power KFLA on RF ch. 8 unusable, but I've never really cared about them anyway. And someone on another forum suggested an FM band trap filter, if per chance a strong FM station(s) might be causing the issue.
Wouldn't mind it so much as I can receive the main channel 13-1 from DIRECTV. But it's the loss of the subchannels 13-3 FOX Movies!, 13-4 H&I, and now 11-3 LIGHTtv (don't care about 13-2 Buzzr) which also broadcast from RF 13 is what hurts.
