Alright, I've had my tivo for two or three years, its a series one. I bought it from Best Buy so I don't think its an AT&T Tivo or any specific cable company's. Recently while watching TV its started to, occasionally, lose normal audio and make noises. I wouldn't call it static noises, its more of a flickering noise. For half a second the good audio might come through but then its back to flickering. There is no problem with the visuals. Just the audio. I'm afraid that TiVo's official support area isn't very helpful when it comes to technical issues like this. Is this a regular problem? I've been trying to find out if its the wires, the tivo or my cable box, but I've replaced the cable splitters and that hasn't solved the problem. I doubt it's the cable box because I figured that if it was, then the TiVo screen should still make the right noises when going through the menu, options, now playing list etc. But all I get are flickery, kind of chirpy noises. When it happens I don't hear any normal audio except for the occasionaly 1/2 second, just flickering. If it helps, my setup is as follows. I have the cable wire, which uses a splitter, splitting off to my cable modem and my cablevision cable box. I hooked up the cable box to the tivo, and then the tivo box to tv cable splits to two TV's. I tried hooking just one cable directly up to the tivo, but that doesn't fix the problem.
