I have a 5 year old Tivo HD which I have always connected with component cables. I have a new Sony Bravia TV which gives integrated control and higher resolution if I use the HDMI connection. I tried this but find the HDMI output from the Tivo is dead. I contacted a repair agent who said this was a known problem with the Tivo HD and the HDCP handshake especialy with Sony TVs. At his instruction I tried new cables, powering up and down and changing Tivo output foremat. Nothing helped. If I purchase a new Premiere will it now negotiate the handshake and communicate with the Sony ? What has been people's recent experience ? I looked on previous threads and found people with HDMI problems but no real solutions.
