    What I can say is to be careful using them. If you see a black screen after the Welcome Screen, don't do ANYTHING. Let it finish whatever it is working on - which could be hours if you have an upgrade drive like I do (2 TB).

    I'm not an expert by any means, so refer to this posting:


    Hope this helps...

    Just ran into this and decided to check if it was the HDMI connection. I connected composite cables and got picture. Good to know the TiVo isn't hosed. Guess I'll contact support about the HDMI out.

    UPDATE: I think I figured it out. For some reason my TiVo was reset to only do video format 480p. Once I rescanned to include 720p and 1080p the HDMI feed began working.
