My TiVo is working like a charm.  

I bought a second one for the folks in the boxing day sales, and set it up over Christmas.  They have a 720p 32" Sony Bravia.

The unit works just fine, but on two occasions over as many days, the picture goes off and then reappears.

I've set the display settings to Fixed 720p and now changed to Native 720 to see if that helps.

I see a couple of threads have been posted about this in the past, but they are locked.

Anyone else had issues with an old Bravia & Tivo. Have I bought a dud unit or is it the HDMI cable?

I posted about this a while back and thought I had sorted it after I removed the aerial from the surge protector but it reappeared recently, I blew out the HDMI socket on each end like an old console cartridge it stopped for quite a while but I don't see why that would happen with a new machine.

Used to happen multiple times a night, now it is once every few days.

The problem only occurred while watching stuff that has been recorded from Prime.   I've left the folks with the machine and asked them to let me know if it happens again.

I hate things like this that happen intermittently.

Hi, I have the same problem except with the sound. When you press the big Tivo button on the remote it goes to homescreen. Then it looses the sound for it with HDMI whereas if I use their colour cables there would be sound when accessing their homepage.

A relative had a similar problem with a different bit of kit. It turned out to be the HDMI cable - must have been badly made or become damaged somehow. Established that this was the cause as it would lose connection at random or if the cable was wiggled. Replaced the cable, problem disappeared.

If you have another HDMI cable, does the problem remain if you use it instead?

Replaced the HDMI cable just now, so will see if this helps.  Otherwise I guess I'll be contacting Hybrid to get advice on what to do next.
