    Hi Everybody!

    I have a new TiVo Bolt Vox 3GB. I got it up and working correctly with the cable card and tuning adapter from Spectrum cable in Los Angeles (Chatsworth).

    Now, the TiVo randomly switches between the Home screen and the live TV screen.
    This video shows what's going on. I'm not even touching the remote, and the screen randomly switches back and forth from Home.

    I would send it back to Amazon, but this is the SECOND TiVo Bolt 3GB. I just returned another TiVo Bolt 3GB that did the exact same thing! I know it sounds crazy. I love TiVo and don't want to give up quite yet. Has anybody else seen this problem?

    I had a 500GB TiVo Bolt that ran perfectly for about 3 years before it died.

    The big arrow might be a clue. It's not normal and eliminates something from the remote being the cause. Sorry, but I have to ask: are you in love with Hydra?

    I can get the arrow just by visiting the Recording Activity folder then moving down to a manual recording. Happens on the host and its Mini. Both doing it since day one with Hydra.

    The Bolt has only been out 2.5 years. But sometimes it can be sluggish and remote commands build up and fire off in succession. So was the remote hit a bunch of times shortly before the video and there was no response at the time from the Bolt? That could certainly cause what the video showed.

    I jiggled the wires and rebooted everything and now it works perfedtly! Thanks for your suggestions!

    And here I was thinking that this was a new, prototype Hydra feature: telekinesis remote control. :)
