My TIVO Bolt OTA has worked fine for about 3 months. Suddenly it doesn't. The TV (An older Sony) gives the "weak or no signal" screen. If I disconnect the TIVO power for a couple minutes and then reconnect it, I get the TIVO logo on the screen for a few seconds and then it is back to "weak or no signal". I have another HDMI signal source, a ROKU stick. The TV has no problem seeing the ROKU on any of its 4 HDMI inputs. I also swapped HDMI cables and the ones I have are all good (work with the ROKU to TV connection).I also checked the input signal from the antenna. The antenna cable comes to a splitter with one output then feeding the TV directly and the other output feeding the TIVO. The TV works fine from either side of the splitter (good video/audio and same signal strength/SNR). Given that the TIVO has a good input signal and is connected to the TV with a known good cable, along with the TV working fine with the ROKU as input, I concluded the problem must be in the TIVO. I sent the TIVO in to Weaknees for repair and they returned it saying there were no problems and that it passed all of their tests. I do think the unit is mostly working (has green front panel light, sometimes the red record light comes on and the amber light flashes when I command it from the remote). The only other thing I could check was the TIVO AC adapter module output voltage. It reads 12.25 volts no load. I don't have the right adapter to read it with the load (TIVO) connected. Unfortunately I don't have another TV. What am I missing?
