I tested the connections and for whatever reason decided to switch HDMI ports which fixed that issue. After doing that did not fix this issue this time, I used the Tivo menu to restart the Tivo. Since then it has been working normally again. But my fear is that this odd behavior is a symptom of an internal problem. Does anybody know what could be causing these symptoms? Is my Tivo about to fail?
If you got a temporary fix by changing which input you use on the TV, try the TiVo connected to different TV, as the current one may be fixing to give trouble that's got nothing to do with the TiVo.
And try the TiVo's component and composite outs to see if the problem is strictly HDMI.
Did I mention that HDMI is the spawn of Satan?
