    I have a TIVO XL with lifetime, Charter Cable, M-Cable Card, and a Tuning Adapter. First thing when the television is turned on, the picture flips like the old tv's used to when you adjusted the vertical/horizontal hold dials to make it stop. If I bring up the TIVO guide, it stops. Remove TIVO guide, flips again. Back and forth a handfull of times, then it is fine. Thought it might be the television, but the guide on TIVO has some impact on it, so I am stumped. Anyone else experience this and get rid of it? What is your best guess that is causing this? Thanks for the input!

    Somewhere you may be getting a loss or attenuation of vertical or horizontal sync signals.

    How does the video get from your Tivo to the television?

    Have you tried taking the Tivo out of the chain to see if it happens with other sources?
