Hi everyone
this is my second unit

I love my tivo esp being able to transfer stuff from my comptuer to it
anyhow

While watching it (either tv or live tv) the picture goes off
and then it says on the screen like 1080 or what ever

so ive changed it to hybrid 1080 or fixed 1080 or all these other ones and it keeps doing it

Is it fault as im getttin real mad with telecom

Sounds like the problem I had last year [look for thread] with my TiVo re-establising the HDMI link every couple of hours or even more often and picture and sound cutting out for a few seconds. The TV would then display it's channel information as though I had just connected a new piece of equipment, meaning that the HDMI link was definitely interrupted.
Once the picture was back if I skipped back on the TiVo, none of the recording was missing.

I tried all sorts of things and it found it improved when I connected my arial directly rather than through a surge protector but still happened a few times but I have just realised realised that it hasn't happened for months now and seems to have corrected itself. Or maybe it stopped after I bought my yamaha AV receiver with HDMI throughput. I wish I could say for sure.

Anyway, there is some hope as I had the problem and somehow made it go away.

DLS
