    Sounds like the nicam bug that early ones had,now the questions =
    1/ have you had the Tivo long?? - if not the software might not be updated to 2.5 or whatever the latest version is,this update fixes the bug in most cases.
    2/ if not,a call to Tivo,who will arrange to have the unit`s nicam fault fixed so it`s bug free,there is no charge for this.
    3/ hop over to the tivo forums,there is a wealth of information and friendly helpfull people just waiting
    4/hope thats of help to you MrBlue

    Bit OT, but is this Nicam problem Tivo only, as I have had problems with my telewest digital box too. I have been having crackles and pops - especially on Channel 4 cricket commentary for some reason!

    This particular " popping " is Tivo only, easily rectified by Tivo.
