You're going to have to provide more information if you want to get more specific help.

What exact model Tivo is the source?

"HD Splitter" "HD Cable" ?!? Are we talking HDMI? Component?

Make, model, type of splitter?

50' is pretty far. If its HDMI, what are the specs of the cable? Attenuation is an issue if its not spec'ed well enough (heavy enough, shielded well enough, etc)

What exact devices are you connecting to?

In what way is it "Not working" exactly?

What troubleshooting steps have you taken?

What data did you gather while attempting your troubleshooting?

Who are "they" that want you to buy equipment? What are you spending $190 on now? confusing.

-Roamio Pro/Slide Pro
-Premiere Xl4
-Stream (Gotta go unplug the sucker one of these days!)

I'd agree that it's probably the distance of your HDMI cable. I have a similar setup. Make sure you've got a high quality HDMI cable with the lowest AWG rating you can get. 50 feet is pushing it. One thing you can try is to reduce the TiVo's output down to 480i and see if you get a signal that way, then slowly move your output up till you get a cutoff of signal.
