TiVo doesn't record when my TV is on stand by

I've had my TiVo box for 12 months now and the problem is still on going 😒 . I can only record programmes when my TV is turned on. When my TV is on stand by the recording fails due to 'power lost', nothing is turned off at the mains. Yesterday I had a new TiVo box and it's still the same. Another thing I've noticed, when I turn my TV it says 'starting up' rather than warming up.

Re: TiVo doesn't record when my TV is on stand by

Starting up is the normal message you get when TiVo,is starting from standby so don't worry about that

 

the other problem sounds to me like a problem on your TV settings tbh. Could you give us more details of you telly? Make model etc. If the TV has a setting turned on which makes the TiVo think it's dead then there's your problem? Might possibly be a Hdmi cable problem but I think you'd get a different message on screen

 

Did the the engineer who replaced your box check it was recording when the telly was off before he left?

Does it record if you remove the HDMI lead from the tv when it is switched off?

The message from standby is WAKING UP......Starting up is from a reboot. Sounds like your tivo constantly reboots.

Re: TiVo doesn't record when my TV is on stand by

Last night I pulled the hdmi out before going to bed and it's worked, my shows recorded and the box was still on.
The engineer didn't check the recording before he left, he just turned that auto stand by off.
My TV isn't a great one, the make is Baird I've had it a few years now. I'm not sure of the model.
