Advertisements Update: I switched to optical from hdmI and the issue went away. But now it's back. It happens for me on kids shows on Disney like doc mcstuffins. I can get the center channel back simply by entering into one of the old style menus like settings. Once I hear the TiVo beep noise from the center channel I can resume the show and everything is fine for awhile. This shows me it's in the TiVo and not the Avr. This issue doesn't happen on my TiVo mini with the same show so it's not the recording either. TiVo offered to replace my TiVo but I'm not sure that will fix it and I'll lose all my settings and shows.
