I'm currently setting up a new Tivo box. I've got as far as the screen which tells me how to set up the Tivo remote to control my TV and have done this successfully.
The trouble I've got is that the instructions on this screen spill off the bottom of the TV picture and I can't see any way of scrolling down. This means that I can't find what the next stage in the Tivo setup, let alone continue with the setup.
Surely I'm not the only person who has had this problem as I've got a pretty standard TV. Does anyone know, if nothing else, what button I need to press on the remote to continue the setup process?
I just had exactly the same issue (menu dropping off the bottom of the screen) and was also stumped. BTW the key to save the remote setup is 'ok' . This should exit the setup process.However I still had the same issue on every subsequent menu.Rebooting and changing HDMI cables didn't help.
Started the Tivo remote setup again and this time noticed an on-screen instruction (top right) to press the screen re-size button (which is to the left of the OK and screen navigation buttons). That fixed all the menus !
I've eventually given up and switched the box off and on again. The setup had completed and the box is working fine. However, I am getting the same thing in some of the menus - but at least I can scroll down these by using the up/down arrow buttons that are round the OK button.
Strange but my problem seems to be a one-off and is probably just one of 'those' things.
Thanks for your post and apologies to hear you're having trouble setting up your TiVo® box.
As mentioned by Tavis75, my first thought is that the issue will be down to the aspect ratio settings. Now it could be the settings on the TV or even the TiVo®. Do you have these selected to 4:3 or 16:9 on the TV?
Have you been able to get any further in setting the TiVo® up or are you still having an issue?
Come back and let us know.

I'm in the process of setting up my box and have same issue. Tried re-setting tv screen res but not made a difference. Have got as far as volume working/can turn off and on using standby but cannot scroll down! Any ideas appreciated!
