    I was moving my tv/tivoHD box to do some dusting, and I pressed the "format" button several times. Now, whenever I press "Live TV" or go to "Tivo Central" I get a flicker effect as well as when I go to play a show, the sound doesnt start until a second after the video plays. This flicker to black/sound interupt problem only happens when going from playing a show, to live tv, to pressing tivo central and any combo of that. This just started after I pressed that darn format button... Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Problem fixed. My LCD is 720p native. I pressed format to change the output to 1080i accidentally - that was causing the flickering and sound problem described above. Changed video output to 720p and problem solved.

    Subsequent presses of the format button will cycle through all the possible modes from 480i to 1080i and fixed, native, or hybrid.

    My current setting is Fixed 720p.
