    My power went out for over 5 hours. When it went back on I have encountered the following. Basic cable not found! When the Tivo is off I get the cable picture. When I turn Tivo on the screen is blue I hit the progressive button,The screen changes to what it should ve but is black and says at the bottom basic cable not found!
    After messing with it for an hour I even did a repeat guided setup. So if you are reading this know, that did not solve anything. The wiring in the back co ax and power never changed.When Tivo is off I get all cable channels. I redid the guided set up (it shows all correct channels) what little thing am I over looking?
    Anyway to blame the wife?
    I have the Toshiba model one with the built in DVD# sd h400
    All other TV's in house a working.
    The problem TV is cable direct in, no cable box set up!

    Have you tried changing out your cables?

    I am getting a signal thru the cable. When power is off I get the signal. When power is on I just get basic cable not found. The power simply was out in my area for 5 hours.

    Plugged in top surge strip. All other functions work on the unit. I can view recorded programs, see the guide, see setup page etc. Just no cable signal when unit is turned on. Thanks
