    Maybe the buffer of the switch/receiver eliminates the problem?

    I'll have to look into that. TiVo must have gone with a different, buggy HDMI implementation for the Roamio.

    I scanned the thread but could have missed it, what brand/type TV do you have?

    An Insignia of some sort. Don't have the model on hand right now.

    I am having the same issue. Not happy about it.

    My main TV is an LG, which has this issue.

    My setup TV was a Samsung which did not have the issue.

    When I use a standard TiVo peanut remote this issue is there 100% of the time.

    When using the the Roamio RF remote, it does not exhibit this issue at all. Very strange. Not sure why it would even make a difference. Unless the RF connection causes the TiVo to push the HDMI signal longer??

    I have the same issue. Also not happy, as I routinely put the Tivo into standby overnight. At first I thought the problem could be solved by powering up the TV (Samsung Smart TV) first, before taking the Tivo out of standby, but this DID NOT solve the problem. It does seem to be time dependent, as I only experience this issue when I start things up in the morning. BTW, I always use the RF remote. I know only the video is missing, beacause I can hear the audio and feedback beeps just fine.

    I experienced this HDMI issue yesterday. I tried disconnecting/reattaching the HDMI cable, turning TV off/on. Only thing that fixed it was putting the TiVo back in standby and bringing it out of standby again. (Note: The area around the green power LED seems to be a capacitive switch which acts as a standby button. I discovered this by accident and was happy when it fixed the problem!)

    oh, and it's a Samsung LN46A750.

    I tried that. I've found it to be an unreliable means of getting HDMI to work.

    What's a good brand/model of powered HDMI switch? I see quite a few on Monoprice, but I have no idea what distinguishes them. It's also unclear if they have IR or RF remotes.

    The specific model is an Insignia NS-L322Q-10A, if it matters.

    I've only had it happen twice, but it worked for me both times to fix the problem.

    I thought it could help others to determine a pattern. There weren't any issues on my LG or Samsung.

    Does changing the format have any effect at all? Live TV, then up arrow should initiate a format change if more than one is enabled.

    Changing format? What's that?

    If you have multiple output resolutions (e.g., 720p, 1080i, 1080p) enabled on your Roamio then pressing up arrow while watching video will change what resolution is sent to the TV.

    I only have 1080p enabled on mine, so I haven't tried thatÂ… but I'll enable another one and give it a try if putting it in/out of standby turns out not to work reliably for me in the future.

    I have my Roamio set to Native (output whatever type the input is).

    More info:

    I had my Roamio on Input 2, and TiVoHD on Input 1. I swapped the inputs. Now the Roamio works correctly, and the HD continues to work as it always did. I have no idea why Input 1 would work but Input 2 fails.

    Edit:
    I spoke prematurely. I'm still seeing the wakeup problem on Input 1.

    Yes, this is still an issue. Even if I have my TV on but set to another input when I wake up the Tivo. This is just as silly. Between this and the green switch issues, it is quite frustrating.

    throwing my issue into the ring as well. I've had the Roamio Pro set up and working for around 4 days now - but only a cable card in it for the last 24 hours. I've got the box in a closet on the opposite side of the wall from the Tivo and am using the Monoprice 15' unidirectional HDMI cable (the tivo is on a shelf near the ceiling in the closet and the blank in the living room is near the floor).

    I have yet to have a chance to troubleshoot while the Tivo wasn't recording something so I haven't had a chance to move the box into the living room and try a normal HDMI cable, but I do know that when I first hooked it all up it was working amazingly, then some time after I got the cable card in and working I had the signal drop out and I cycled the power on the Tivo and it came back no problem and was working when I changed input to my laptop to watch something from it. Once I switched back to the Tivo, the single was gone and I have yet to figure out a way to get it back. Power cycled the Tivo, power cycled the TV (including unplugging the power for a few minutes), Try different HDMI ports, tried hooking the cable up to my old Premier 4 that is in the same closet, nothing. What does work with out a problem, however, is if I take my laptop in there and plug it in via the same HDMI cord.

    So... my next step is to pull the tivo from the closet when it is finished recording Agent's of Shield and see how it works with a standard 3' HDMI.

    Oh, and the TV is a 46" Samsung LED "Dumb" Tv (no apps or anything).

    Update: Moved tivo into living room and so far it works fine on standard HDMI - so it seems that the Monoprice Redmere Cable creates a problem in the Tivo/TV handshake that the laptop has no problem with.

    Interesting. The failures I see all happen with standard 28-gauge Monoprice HDMI cables, with or without a Monoprice auto-sensing HDMI switch in between the TiVo and TV. I have some Redmere cables but I haven't tried them yet.
