  1. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    Hello Tivo users, I have a refurbished Bolt from about 2018 (maybe), and in the last few days I'm noticing heavy pixelation and picture quality issues along with some random, 'signal not found trying again' and then the picture comes back. Sometimes the whole picture just freezes and then comes...
  2. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    Is there any chance that replacing/upgrading a Bolt to an Edge would help improve the cable signal being received? My Bolt is about 3 years old. It worked fine until several weeks ago, the cable TV channels have been pixelating horribly with audio cutting out (like a bad phone call). Cox Cable...
  3. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    I've noticed that everything my 18 mo old Tivo 3TB Bolt has recorded the last 2 days has constant pixelation & audio dropouts about every 2 seconds. Programs are unwatchable. But it doesn't do it on live TV. In fact, I went to a program in progress and watched it for a few minutes with no blips...
  4. TiVo Edge
    I have a new Tivo Edge OTA purchased 11/27. I am experiencing pixelation on recording playback only. The pixelation is not present when the same show is watched live. I have called Tivo and done some troubleshooting. Diagnostics shows that the channel being recorded has an 86 to 88 percent...
  5. TiVo Roamio DVRs
    Our Roamio Pro began experiencing video issues over the past few days. The initial TiVo screen at start up (TiVo logo) is clear, but beyond that, it’s completely distorted. I’ve attempted restarts and swapped out the HDMI cable with no luck. I’ve also tried switching the hdmi input in my...

    I need to use a tuning adapter to to receive the premium channels from Spectrum. I'm getting pixelation and screen tearing but only for the channels that require the tuning adapters (HBO, SHOWTIME, NBA ETC) The standard channels give me no issues (CNN, FOX, ESPN). I'm currently using a BOLT...

    I have a 500GB Tivo Bolt VOX with Comcast Cable. Live TV is perfect, but during playback of recordings, at random intervals from 10 to 30 minutes apart, the playback video will pixelate for a couple seconds (audio is unaffected) and go back to normal. The odd part is that if I hit the Replay...

    1/28/2019 On Cox cable here, they recently (11/2018) moved their channels around with most channels above 1000 now using switched digital video (SDV) service. For 2 years up to this point, I have had no problems whatsoever with any channels. Since this switch, I now see bursts of pixelation on...

    Hey folks, I have noticed that it seems like every couple of weeks my recording become more and more pixelated. 2 nights ago it was so bad I could barely watch live tv. restarted and all was good. Any idea if I can schedule a regular reboot? I am not on Hydra, should I be? Thanks!
  10. TiVo Roamio DVRs
    I have a Roamio that I bought August 2018. OTA is almost always clear when watching live TV. Two programs get recorded from OTA signals each day: one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The recording of the morning show is always fine. The recording of the afternoon show is frequently...

    Hello, I have a TIVO OTA connected to an outside antenna, then connected to a main SUHD TV. I also have a bedroom LCD TV connected to the same antenna, no TIVO box. Both TV cables connect in the basement, then one cable connects to the antenna. I experience pixelation on one of the stronger...

    I've been a satisfied Tivo customer since the days of my first Tivo, the Series 1. However, this week I've finally been worn out trying to fix the pixelation and "searching for signal" problems I've had since last winter. Hours and hours of time on the phone with Charter Spectrum, with Tivo...
  13. TiVo Help Center
    I have Charter Spectrum cable TV running through a TIVO Bolt, and I have a situation where most of the network HD channels (CBS, ABC, NBC) plus several other channels turned up last winter with serious pixelation issues (ranging from pixelated lines across screen to most of the screen being a...
  14. TiVo Roamio DVRs
    Hi, I purchased the TiVo Roamio OTA and have recently been experiencing a very weak signal / pixelation from WFRV-DT (CBS). As most of you know, TiVo customer support is less than helpful. I am hoping someone could take a look at the info below, as well as my TV Fool report, and offer advice...

    I have a Renewed TIVO Bolt 500gb, bought during the recent black friday sale. After lots of trial and error, multiple calls with Verizon Fios and Tivo, a trip to Verizon to get a new cable card, and a service call from Verizon Fios, I have found it works with a 6 way splitter with the unused...

    During playback of recorded programs- I get one or two incidents where the screen pixelizes for a few seconds. No other issues. Happens on all recorded programs. This is a two week old Bolt.

    My new tivo Bolt works perfectly fine with OTA antenna. However, i wanted to add cable so I had xfinity-comcast cablecard installed yesterday (technician indicates signal strength is perfect) but the bolt has major pixelation in standard def and can't even pull in HD channels. The tech...

    ...that is a cartoon channel that the kids really really want to watch. New Roamio Pro, no problems with the exception of this channel having audio dropping and pixelation almost all the time. Issue appears when watching it live and when streaming the recording. It clears up sometimes but...
