    I just bought a used TiVo Bolt w/Mini. I hooked up the Mini & there's a lot of staticky snow popping on & off the screen. I see it loading, but it is difficult to see. The person I bought it from said it worked perfectly when they had it. I've tried different wires, different AC/DC plugs. Nothing feels loose. Any ideas, suggestions?

    Is the HDMI cable loose on either the Mini or TV end? Try resetting it.

    No, the HDMI cable seems fine. Plus, I've tried a few cables, to make sure it wasn't the cable itself. There's a new one in there now. It'll clear up completely sometimes, but only for a couple of seconds.

    I discovered the issue! I feel a little silly, cause I didn't think to try this before posting the question. I just connected the HDMI to a different input on the TV & it was fine. Strange, though, because whatever else is hooked up to that input, works just fine. I still don't understand why it made the Mini staticky, but at least I figured out a work around!
