    Just happened. There was a very brief power outage but don't know if that was a factor. Was not using it at the time.

    TV says "No signal" but light on Tivo flashes with remote button presses. Tried all three HDMI inputs on TV. Tried brand new quality 2.0 HDMI cable. Unplugged Tivo overnight. I can hear constant "seeking" sounds from internal Tivo drive (which I think is normal).

    What else can I try? Does anyone offer a repair option? I hate to trash it as it has lifetime service.

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    Ed

    There are other reports of hdmi ports going bad after electrical issues. Try using component cables. I think that's your fix.

    OK I'll give it a try. I think I've got some component cables around here someplace.

    Thanks for giving me some hope!

    You were right on. Component connection is working fine.

    Many thanks,
