My Tivo is currently duplicating the old and new channels after a re-scan of the channels

Had to make sure I had selected the correct Mux frequencies for the channels

602 000 Mhz or 594 000 depending on where your aerial points
Prime
Choice
Sommet
Parliament
Firstlight
CTV8
CTV33

586 000 Mhz or 578 000
Al Jazerra
TVSN
Yes Shop

You may need to run a further channel scan if the line up is still not correct.

Thanx for the info.  I'll check mine tonite when I get home..  I've found it's sometime trial and error to see which feed is better..

Parents are having problems with their TiVo. Dad decided to sort it out himself and did a channel scan. It didn't pick up all the expected channel changes (he had a list, I think from the Herald) so he thought he'd just wipe the existing list and do the scan again. In theory that shouldn't be an issue, and Freeview do suggest that clearing the lot and starting again was an option on the channel 500 page of instructions. The TiVo only found 14 channels, and Prime, Choice and Sommet weren't amongst them at all. Have tried manual scans and rescans but no luck. Heading over later today to see if I can figure out what the problem is.

Watch out for muti access TV aerials in Apartment Buildings

The installation within the apartment building may need a reconfiguration so please get in touch with your bodycorp/building manager

As soon as I got to my parents I realised that's what's going on there (it's a holding pen.. errr, retirement village, with what appears to be a multi access aerial configuration). Have referred them to management to get it sorted.

Our TiVo definitely had some issues here (West Auckland) starting Wednesday afternoon with not receiving channels clearly anymore etc. Rescanning would do as above (only find some channels, blah blah) ... took a number of rescans until it had found all channels, but even then, it wouldn't get a decent signal on many of them. (Same issue with the tv itself).

We're still on the old mixed aerial, so was set to spring for a proper UHF one but all has returned back to normal today.

I'm not ruling out the aerial, but, just seems too coincidental that the only time we've had issues was around the restack - whether they were playing with the transmission strength at the same time, who knows.

I have found the solution to get all the Freeview channels back onto Tivo after the Auckland Restack.  It worked perfectly on my 3 Tivos.

Just 11 easy steps as follows:

1.  Go to Tivo Central and select "Messages & Settings"
2.  In the Messages & Settings page select "Settings"
3.  In the Settings page select "Channels"
4.  In the Channels & Settings page select "Channel Scan"
5.  In the Channel Scanning page select "Delete previously Scanned Channels"
6.  In the Delete Scanned Channels page, press the THUMBS DOWN button three times, then the ENTER button
7.  It will then give a Warning, ignore this and select "OK, access this setting"
8.  A box will appear on your TV screen saying "Scanning for Channels".  It will take several minutes to complete.
9.  Once Channel Scanning is complete, Press select to continue
10. In Channel Scan Complete page select "Add new channels to Channels List"
11. Now you can go back to Live TV and you should have all the Freeview channels that you had before the 1st May 2014

Your 'solution' is just the normal way to go about it. Unfortunately this won't help in the above situations where a complex/apartment block has shared access to the aerial, where not all frequencies may be available on the cabling. In this case as 
FOCUS0 pointed out above, you'll need to get hold of your body corporate or management need to have the company servicing this aerial network attend to make some changes. Once they've got their equipment sorted you can scan/add channels as normal.

Well, it was a great coincidence but turns out that actually it was our aerial, wires had started to come off ... new aerial and all sorted.

I had top do the same as well.  The first scan gave me 3 ~ 4 copies of the same channel.   A delete all and recan sorted it.  At least I now get a EPG with Al Jazeera
