    A few weeks ago I replaced a small Samsung TV with a brand new 43" Samsung 4k for a whopping $270.

    SAMSUNG 43" Class 4K Crystal UHD (2160P) LED Smart TV with HDR UN43TU7000 2020

    TiVo Mini (RA9200) - connected via HDMI
    -Software Version: 21.10.2.v6-a92-6-a92

    Now, seemingly randomly, when I attempt to use my Mini and go straight to my recordings they play as a blank video (UI works fine, and the video controls / video length seem to be normal).

    I can fast forward through the recording, but no video or audio plays on the Samsung, only a black screen with the TiVo user interface.

    I've disconnected the power from both the Mini and the TV which does not resolve this problem. I even swapped a Mini from another room and still experience the same problem.

    I've eventually found a workaround by playing live TV first, then the recordings seem to work normally after. The problem eventually comes back later.

    Anyone know what may be causing this or know of a proper fix?

    NOTE: I have had no problems on older TVs. Seems specific to the new model.

    I believe others are reporting similar issues.


    You might want to state the OS versions running on your Mini and DVR.

    Thanks KRKAUFMAN, agree this sounds very similar.

    MiniBen, I couldn’t even get livetv working today. I’ll keep you posted if I figure out anything.

    My wife reported the same thing happening today. Just another thing broken by another TE4 update I imagine.
