TiVo lost signal for all but one channel after rescan

And I spent an hour on the phone with a TiVo person, we shall see.

My biggest concern now is that, as was true a year or two ago, the only way I’d get NBC was on 15.1 whereas the other options they offered worked in nearby apartments (I’m in Brookline, MA) but not mine.  So they added 15.1 and that worked.  As of this morning, 15.1 doesn’t come in at all in my living room at all and the others don’t either, and my call to NBC10’s support for this gets me put on hold at the FCC and on one ever answers.  

Does anyone know the frequencies that NBC is using, since TiVO mainly seems to want to know frequencies.

>> I rescanned this morning, both a standalone TV and a TiVO connected to another TV.  The stand alone TV came through just  fine but my TiVO only has the signal for channel 7.1, and nothing for any other channels, although it shows the station names, logos, and program guide info but no audio or video. TiVo support isn’t open for an hour and I’m not sure what to do. Any suggestions?
