I've looked at the threads but nobody seems to have problems with video downlaod at the moment. I know someone out there will be able to tell me what dumb thing I've done but I can't figure it out. I had TiVo plugged into Freeview and a HDD/DVD recorder & a scart switcher so I could record in play mode directly from TiVo but suddenly I was getting the blue screen of death. Plugging Freeview box striaght into TV showed the problem was with TiVO so I set everything up as the TiVo guide suggests without any fancy daisy-chaining & eventually worked out I needed a new co-ax cable to connect TiVo to the DVD. Now I have Live TV back & TiVo recording fine but no matter what I do I can't download from TiVo to the DVD. I realise I now have to use the VCR button on TiVo to view the menu screens on the DVD but when I select "download to VCR" I don't get the countdown function and whatever setting I have my DVD player input set to (I've gone back to RGB instead of video as that's what my TV screen seems to be defaulting to) - if I hit record on the DVD all I get is a black screen. Some kind soul out there will, I'm sure, know how to get me back to happy co-existence with my little silver box - clicking on "now playing" and getting a blank screen was depressing but now I run a serious risk of my hard drive filling up and having no way of downloading/editing the matter on there. Help - please!!!
