Can someone with Tivo help please?


Standard Member

I got my virgin tivo box installed today and I've already bricked it!

Was playing with the menus, seeing what it can do and tried the "test video outputs" thing, where it scrolls through output settings and you press :thumbsup: to say you can see the picture. After the first few video changes it did nothing for a while, and then the sound came back but no picture. It's obviously changed to a setting not compatible with my TV somehow. And apparently the tivo team at VM are closed due to "bad weather" :(.

Could anyone please run through the button presses needed (after pressing "home") to set it to 1080i?

EDIT: Nvm, I put a scart lead in to change the resolution (which was still actually set to 1080i), put the HDMI back in and the picture is back! Phew, was in the doghouse for a while there lol. Bit of a weird one that.
