    Yes, I am having this issue as well.
    I couldn't figure out how to get my Apple TV to display I thought I had a broken Apple TV. Now I turned off "wake at press of tivo button" and its back to letting me use the apple tv but now I have to manually switch back to the tivo.... TIVO ARE YOU GOING TO FIX THIS?????

    I fixed it by adding a Caavo to my system. Now when I switch to the ATV the input stays there.

    So how are you liking the Caavo with the Tivo and Apple Tv does the voice control work on each respectively through the caavo remote?

    As far as I can tell you can only use the microphone on the caavo remote for caavo systems. You can't use that microphone button to search entirely on the TiVo or entirely on the Apple TV.

    The system needs some work but overall I like it.

    There are a number of issues with the TiVo CEC at the moment. My Apple TV works great with CEC as does my Oppo 203, but the TiVo is not working correctly. I turned TiVo CEC back off. It would be great if they get it working.

    Is green light on bolt considered standby mode?

    The green LED on a TiVo goes out in Standby. You can use a setup option to cause all LED to remain off except the amber one caused by the remote.

    Standby has no effect on recording. Just pretend there is no Standby or Power Saving. Perhaps you are not expressing your problem in a form I can help with?

    Thanks. I was just trying to understand why one would use standby. Mine is always on, with green light, but I was having some cec issues between tv, avr and TiVo and was curious if standby option would help or make it worse

    I understand. I never use CEC, Standby, ARC, or HDMI Control with any device.

    Because in standby, EAS alerts won't screw up recordings.

    Good point. I forgot about those Emergency Alert System tests. Mine always happen during the day, so my only issue is when they knock me out of a recording.

    Added to my abbreviations.

    Emergency Alert System.

    One week Verizon FiOS started doing these things during prime time. Which could easily screw up recordings. But still even with the after midnight or mid-day alerts, if you are recording something it could still get screwed up.

    If my 6 tuner Bolt is watching live tv, or even a recorded show, I would expect the EAS to kick me out and display the alert. I've never understood why it would screw with a recording on a channel you're not viewing anyway.

    From a technological standpoint they should allow the recording to stand and only seize the viewing feed. That being said... With CEC it's only a matter of time before the tv turns itself on, wakes you up with that squealing pitch, and then blasts out "this is only a test"

    I am having issues where TIVO Bolt works fine with CEC for a few days. Then I try to start everything back up again with the TIVO button and all I get is a black screen (sometimes a flash of the channel it is on). No image no sound. If I use my roku remote it switches to the roku. I get picture and sound. Hit the tivo button to go back to the tivo no picture no sound. If a recording is happening it still records. However in order to get the picture/sound back I have to unplug the tivo box. Then it works fine for 4 to 5 days. I don't run into any issues with my tv, roku and dvd player when it comes to this. Just the Tivo box ;-(

    Are you connected direct to the TV, or to an AVR? If an AVR, might try power cycling the AVR, instead of the Bolt, to reduce the number of hard shutdowns you have to do.

    Also, does turning off CEC solve the problem? Asking because it sounds like an HDCP issue that may or may not be related to CEC.

    No matter, I'd definitely report this to TiVo tech suppport.

    Tivo to AVR, AVR to TV. Powering down AVR makes no difference. Even switched the AVR out didn't change the issue. I had a different issue when CEC wasn't available. I had to switch to my roku and get the sound going and then switching back to the TIVO to get it to work correctly. But I don't think I had the no screen issue.
