I'm having a strange occurrance with my TiVo series 2. When I got home from work yesterday and turned on the TV, I went to change the channel and the screen went black. In addition to that, when I tried to change the channels they would not change on the cable box. I'm using the serial hookup and it works fine all other times I try to change the channels. When I did some troubleshooting of my own I tried to connect the cable box directly to my TV (bypassing the TiVo) and it worked fine. I was able to temporarily resolve the issue by restarting the TiVo. Another time I just fiddled around with the guide for about 5 minutes and it popped back on. This is the third time this week that this has happened to me.
Does anyone know if this is a known bug in the TiVo 7.3.1 software?
If it were poor signal strength like I've read on the other post wouldn't the TiVo display the blue screen message that reads "No Video Detected"?
Any assistance on this would be greatly appreciated.
