    The TiVo HD I resurrected from the flashing green light is not outputting HDMI. Everything else seems to be working fine.

    Once back into NP after finishing guided setup, since I’m going to use it OTA only, I chose a show and switched to HDMI. Black screen. I checked other HDMI inputs on the TV. Same. The cable works with other HDMI devices.

    So right now it’s only over composite. Don’t have more cables to try component.

    I don’t think I ever used HDMI with this HD due to limitations of my old TV when I last used it. Maybe it never worked or stopped later, I dunno. Is there any reason newer HDMI cables wouldn’t work with an HD? Is there something I’m missing with using HDMI?

    The HDMI cables should work with the Tivo, if they work with another device. What do you have the output resolution on the Tivo set to? Try setting the output resolution on the Tivo to 720P and the aspect ratio to 16:9.
