My Tivo doesn't like my TV lol

Series 2 DT, for almost a year the tivo in the bedroom would make the tv hum loudly when you turned it up past half way, nothing else hooked to it would. This weekend I finally got tired of it (pain makes me cranky and want to fix things) and I started experimenting around and figured out it was a ground loop issue inputting into the rca audio jacks from the Tivo because Tivo in all its wisdom decided that running a ground wire to the wall was just too much hard work.

So now my S2 has a three prong power cord from the junk box and no more humming.

How did you plug a three prong cable into a two prong jack on the TiVo?

And the TiVo should be getting ground from your cable or antenna coax cable. Sounds like your coax is not properly grounded.

What if the Tivo is using an indoor antenna? How do you ground that?
