I had thought the swapping power supplies might fix it - if my original one was failing, but that didn't make a difference.
Does anyone have any ideas on what could be causing this?
Thanks again in advance
The very first screen, the "Welcome" screen, is on a chip on the motherboard.
Everything after that is on the hard drive.
What model number TiVo(s) are we talking about here, and which method are you using to get video to the television?
RF out, TV tuned to 3 or 4?
Composite video (yellow plug)?
Component video (red, green, blue plugs)?
