Hi

I have a Samsung tv and I am having issues with 2 tivo boxes, when you set video output to native or hybrid it’s sets say tv one at 1080i however if you switch to an sd channel say choice and then switch back to tv one it shows tv one at 576 resolution you can see it’s not as clear.

The info banner on the tv confirms it’s sd and then if you go into the tivo it has reverted back to 576 fixed (the default setting) not sure if the tv is doing this or the tivo. It’s diving me crazy and makes the tivo useless unless you are happy with sd only.

Any idea of a fix or anyone having a similar issue, 2018 Samsung and also a 2016. Model do this.

Thanks

Hi Tivo guru's, 

 

My Tivo has had the grey screen twice in the past week or so. ( it has been modified to get the OzTivo EPG )

 

My gut is telling me it is the hard drive.

 

What is the best drive to use these days, if I recall WD Green was the flavour for a while.

 

Thanks

 

John

Mine has a 2Tb Green drive and the only issues that I have had since modding are one lockup and one spontaneous reboot.

I don't think you'll find new WD green drives around any more. Several models of these needed to have their idle timeout settings modified to survive a warm reboot in the Tivo, so generally I wouldn't recommend them. The drives I use, and are generally favoured for Tivos  are the WD purple surveillance drives designed for 24/7 operation. They're fairly quiet and run cool. I would recommend against general desktop 7200rpm drives. The WD Red NAS drive range are also good options, but a little more pricey.

Rather than using the Hybrid setting, I'd recommend setting the resolution to 1080i fixed in the settings menu, which is the default setting. Let the Tivo scale SD content up to 1080i rather than forcing your TV to do it and see if that helps your problem, which isn't very common.
