    Apologies if this is in another thread, but I can't seem to find mention of the same problem.

    For the most part, my streaming works fine except that on a limited number of channels I get sound with no image, just a black screen. This is true whether I am in or out of home and also applies to shows that I download to my ipad.

    does anyone know what my issue is?

    Let's get the basics out of the way:

    You running the latest version of the app?

    You running latest version of iOS?

    Have you tried rebooting the ipad, the stream and the tivo involved? (Or the Roamio?)

    This has happened since day one with Roamio. The problem has persisted through many firmware and software versions on an ipad and an iphone, all of which are up to date. Reboots have been attempted many times and its clear this is a persistent problem.

    Some of you may be aware of the FF and RW issue that was seen on certain channels early on with Roamio but has since been fixed. This black screen issue is, I think, limited to the same channels on which I used to have the FF/RW problem.

    I think that is a big clue if that indeed is the case. You probably will need to open an issue report with TiVo and indicate this suspicion as a clue to perhaps what may be going on. Whatever fixes TiVo did to address the FF/REW issue may also need to be done to the internal Stream.
