Restarting a thread on this - the problem is that TiVo crashes and reboots when HDMI cable connected to AV amp.
Was there a resolution to this - been with Virgin/NTL for donkeys years on broadband - just got TiVo and i have the same problem with the HDMI connected to Denon Amp causing TiVo to restart and stop. Looking at forums it looks like this has been a problem for over ten years - which is a little worrying. Clearly it is a TiVo problem as the amp port works absolutely fine with SKY, Apple TV, basically anything else. Works ok when connected directly to TV - however TV sound is rubbish - no point in having Virgin TV if you can't get Cinema sound quality. Not happy.
Thanks for the info - I'll give it a try but it does defeat the object of easy connectivity and channel selection etc. I just don't get why all other equipment works on the amp. Even more weird is why an input from one unit should affect an output from another.
I had issues with the TiVo and a Harmon-Karon amp. the amp reset whenever I switched between 5.1and stereo on the TiVo unless I used optical, in which case I still got loud cracks but it didn't crash. I now have a Marantz with no problems and 9 fewer cables .
never had the issue with a Denton either
id say the HDMI from the TiVo is poorly implemented and not compatible with all amps, which is probably down to cheap/old Cisco boards
