    All shows broadcast in 1080i produce a black screen with sound. When I switch the TiVo to 720p fixed the picture appears. I have a SONY XBR 1080p TV so its not the TV. Tried almost everything I think, but want to check here to see if this happened to anyone else and what did you do? Big difference between a 1080i and 720p picture.

    Dont double post.
    How is the Tivo connected to the TV? Can you try the other connection type (HDMI VS Component)?

    It's hooked via HDMI. The HDMI cable worked with the previous unit, so I don't think its the connection, but I'll give it a try. Isn't there a difference in component vs. HDMI as well?

    Technical details and subtle quality differences aside, component cables don't handle sound - you'll need to use the optical or red/white RCA plugs for sound.
