    I posted this problem in the help forum and am not sure that was the right place so am repeating it here.

    I have a ota bolt, it drops the picture signal to the tv and the screen goes blank for a couple minutes then the picture returns for a couple minutes, this will repeat over and over. The remote mini that uses it is not affected and has both live tv and recordings. The dvr records and all the menus are available. The problem happens immediately when live tv or a recording is selected.

    I have tried another cable.

    The system has been working for over a year until yesterday. The problem is internal to the Bolt.

    Well I may be wrong. I moved the Bolt to another tv and it works fine; I moved the mini to the problem tv and have the same issue. It appears the tv is the problem.

    Force the TiVo to 720p and put it back on the original TV and see if it works then.
