TiVo Scart output freezing

My TiVo box outputs to 1 tv via HDMI and another via Scart.

It's worked fine for years but just recently the Scart output keeps freezing when outputting live tv or recordings. The HDMI output is fine. I have made no system changes to cause this.

A reboot doesn't fix anything.

Do I need an engineer?

Re: TiVo Scart output freezing

I should add, from the TiVo box the Scart outputs to an RF modulator before going to the TV. Could the modulator be causing the freeze?

Re: TiVo Scart output freezing

Hi Pagemakers,

 

Thanks for coming by Smiley Happy

 

I'm sorry that you're getting poor picture through the scart connection.  I'll be happy to help check this out for you.

 

I have connected tot he box remotely and all looks fine from here signal wise.  

 

Have you tried another scart lead to rule out a possible faulty scart?  I know you've mentioned you haven't changed anything with the current setup, it would be great to rule out if it's faulty.

 

Keep me posted, I'm here to help if you need me Smiley Happy

Re: TiVo Scart output freezing

I back home tomorrow so I'll check. The picture isn't bad it just keeps freezing. Is it possible that the TiVO SCART output is faulty?

Re: TiVo Scart output freezing

Thank you for your quick reply Pagemakers, 

 

It is a possibility that it may be the scart output on the TiVo®.  One way to confirm if that's the case is to connect the current scart from the TV set to another device that uses scart (If you have one).

 

If the picture plays fine then it will narrow down tot he TiVo box.

 

Let me know how you get on, I'm here to help Smiley Happy

Re: TiVo Scart output freezing

I swapped Scart cables and so far it's ok. I'll report back after a couple of days

Re: TiVo Scart output freezing

Happening again so it can only be the TiVo box.

Calling for an engineer.

Hi Pagemekers Smiley Happy

 

Thanks for coming back so soon on this and posting. 

 

I'm sorry to say that this is still ongoing and I'd like to help. 

 

I have found a detectable issue on the TiVo some of the Input levels and SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio) are performing below what Id like. 

 

I've sent you a 'Private Message', you can find this by clicking on the little red envelope near the top left of the page.
 
Get back to me when you can.
 
Ben
