    Looks like a faulty tivo Aux scart, possibly caused by shorting. Is this a fairly common problem and is there a fairly simple workaround ?

    How have you determined that? e.g. have you replaced the scart lead; tried the STB in something else (preferably another vcr/pvr rather than direct in to the tele); tried something else into the TiVos aux scart ?

    No sound and picture from AUX input?

    Have tried all possible permutations, ie stb scart works directly with tv, using same scart lead, other scart leads fail to produce picture or sound when connecting the same stb to tivo.

    Decided to remove cover to inspect for any obvious signs of a blow-out and took the opportunity to remove 9 years accumulation of dust and fluff (Must have been a beakerful!). Could not detect anything out of the ordinary, as regards faulty components.

    Replaced cover and connected up scarts exactly as before, switched-on the power and bingo!! Everything works normally.

    This remains as one of life's mysteries.

    There is a known issue where the TiVo won't ever see any input on AUX
    if the STB was turned off during the TiVo bootup process.

    Thanks, Mike - I'll bear that in mind for the future.
