Can't receive OTA signals anymore (solved with rescan)
A couple weeks ago, my HDTV antenna setup that has worked fine for years just...stopped working. I flipped on my TV a couple weeks ago and none of them can get a signal.
I have an externally-mounted directional antenna, which connects to about 50 feet of coaxial cable that runs down to my basement. There, I have a small signal amplifier, then a junction panel that splits the signal to 5 rooms.
Here's what I've done:
1. Tested coaxial cable with a cable tester I have. It says it's good. I've tested from the antenna all the way through to one of my TVs. As long as the signal amp isn't in the line, the tester says a-OK.
2. Took the junction panel out of the equation and connected antenna -> signal amp -> one of my TVs. Nothing. Tried without the signal amp. Nothing.
3. Replaced signal amplifier with a different/new model. Nothing.
4. Replaced antenna (did this today). Nothing.
I am honestly at a loss here. I'm getting absolutely nothing, no signal whatsoever. Whereas before I had super strong signal, no issues at all. I've replaced or tried bypassing every component involved, and my cable tester says the signal is fine. What else can I do to figure out what the problem is?
