ok so i just re-initialized my HDD after getting a green screenscreen using InstantCake. No Problems yet.
Tivo boots, do the walk through. Do the Phone Call. awesome.
connect the cable box.
no tv image or sound.
i can see the Tivo menus, the beep sound from the Tivo interface comes thru.
so i think cable box isn't sending signal. i disconnect the S-Video from Tivo, plug directly into the TV. Channel 4 News pops up on the TV.
for some reason the Tivo isn't recieving or passing thru the TV signal.
i tried different DVR A/V settings. no luck.
