Despite promises to the Telecom CTS  Support folks Tivo Australia have failed to contact me. The Telecom Complex Support Team have been great its not their fault.

I have however escalated the issue to Telecom Senior Management. The actions of Tivo Australia is reflecting badly on Telecom.

Not to mention I am out of a Tivo for 5 weeks and counting.

As posted earlier, have you tried adding an attenuator to the antenna cable? I know it seems like a strange thing to need to do, but it has been reported to fix similar problems for other freeview HD receivers.

Yep ,I tried an inline and a variable attenuator from DSE to bring my signal strength down to around 80 . But alas to no avail.

This unit is just a dead marine.

The new Tivo arrived by Courier last evening. I set it up last night and all seemed well.

A big thank you to the Telecom Management and especially the Telecom CTS team who got Tivo Australia to finally see sense.

It has been several weeks since my machine was replaced by Telecom. It has not skipped a beat. It is working flawlessly. Never missed a set recording , no grey screens nothing.

Thank you Telecom and the Complex Help Desk , you are awesome.
