Live TV works fine over HDMI, but menus are garbled?

    Encountered a very strange problem with my Tivo HD last night. All of a sudden, all the menu screens because completely jumbled - picture jumping with horizontal lines and a lot of green color mixed in. I can see the cursor moving around when I use the remote, but I can't really see what's going on.

    If I switch to live TV, everything is fine.

    If I switch from HDMI to composite (haven't tried component yet), the menus work.

    What would cause the menus to be bad but tv to be fine?

    Sounds like an output format/resolution issue? If you go under Messages & Settings > Settings > Video > Video Output Formats you should be able to run the "auto detect" process that will tell the TiVo what formats your television supports.

    Hm, I did have a thought that possibly the format button on the front of the machine got bumped? I don't know if that would cause this type of behavior. I'll have to check it when I get home.
