    I was using my now-OEM Premiere as per normal, deleting at the end a recorded show, when the menus suddenly came back with a black background. NO VIDEO PLAYING would work. No live TV. No playing of recordings. I just saw the green timeline on the black background. No audio either.

    Pandora worked, complete with album art in color.

    I was thinking that the bulb in my DLP had just died except I would think that would be black on black and no signal whatsoever.

    When I power cycled the TV I got the Mitsu logo in color.

    So what is it? Loose HDMI cable? Switch to another input/TiVO to test?

    I did a soft restart from the Settings menu.

    The "Please wait" TiVo guy came up in full color and eventually did his little mocking stroll as always and the S4TP was back to the normal precarious state.

    Since the S3 there has been happy with its 1.3TB upgrade, I will be moving the Premiere to the bedroom in its place to serve as the very rarely used remote source. It is sad.
