SD-DVR80 channel problem

Our old Tivo box is acting up (I think DVR-80s use dog years so ours is
really old). If you watch the signal strength the satellite 1 input is normal
and stable. The satellite 2 input (on about 6 of the 32 transponders) is
cycling on and off. We've done enough troubleshooting to prove it is
inside the DVR-80. I do have some spare parts but I need to know which
circuit area is the probable cause and if someone knows where we can
find a diagram for the box.

Thanks
john and curly

Are you using s-video? See http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...d.php?t=333631 Switch to composite and the problem will probably go away...

Thanks texasbrit

Your response led me to the information I needed. After reading about the difficulty other users had after only a year or two I'm surprised our ten year old box didn't fail until now (not counting the disk drive we replaced in '09). I appreciate your help.
