The HDD has nothing to do with the tuner (or at least it shouldn't).
Bad tuner, bad system processor, another bad cap, corrupted memory (long shot). Can you play back any existing recordings?

Considering the age, time it might have run out for this.

PS; welcome to the forums.

Recording free OTA TV for 'time shifting' has been here since 1975. Will there be DVR's to do the same when ATSC3 obsoletes existing DVR's??

I could replace the one tuner or demod chip, but … probably it would be wise to buy whole main board.
PM would be better for further discussion.

Tried to PM you, but my post count is too low. I would be willing to buy a main board, but is there such a thing for sale?...

Thanks for your feedback

By the way, my first post was wring about the signal strength. I tried it again and it always says 100% for all channels. Obviously something wrong with that...

just continue posting … when you'll get 5(?) posts, your PM will be avail;

SS is not correct parameter for judge full RF signal - SQ is the key, use it ;

I could part out a main board ...
