    Went behind my first generation white 500gb Bolt. Was checking to see if that button to find the remote works. Other than being quite warm, the coax cable was loose. Like ten turns loose. It had not affected the picture yet. Is this normal? Why would it loosen up? Tension? Heat? I always wondered why the first troubleshooting steps for picture issues is to "check your connections". BTW, the remote thingy did not work.

    Cable can work it's way loose if the tightening nut wasn't tight on to begin with, or if the tivo's been moved around.

    Remote finder should work if it's an RF or Bluetooth remote, so long as it's paired up right.
