    With optical going to the AVR, you only hear the Tivo sounds when you are in the menus or when the audio is already PCM.
    If the audio signal is digital, you will not hear the Tivo sounds through the AVR.

    I have the setup with HDMI to the TV and ToSlink to the AVR.
    When I use the AVR, I leave the volume up on the TV because I like the Tivo sounds.

    Not sure what you point was here but Tivo supports 1080p24 over component connections just fine. The component video interface supports up to 1080p60 but TiVo cannot output that high a frame rate at 1080 resolution. IE there is no downgrade of resolution or frame rate using component connections on the Tivo.

    Some BluRay players do not output HD AT ALL on component connections but that is a Digital Rights Management issue, not a technical limitation of the interface.

    Just a mistake on my part. I thought component could only do 1080i max. I thought you had to have HDMI for 1080p. Apparently I was wrong.

    Unfortunately, TiVo's sounds can be heard through HDMI. Luckily, there is an option to disable them so that I don't go insane.
