V6 box installed Friday 3rd feb. Kept losing picture every time Samsung Smart TV powered off. had to do complete reset of TV to get picture back. V6 box works, tv works but not together. Engineer out Monday PM. Tried new HDMI cables and various resets, but still same problem. Installed new TIVO 500 box and low and behold everything works fine.
Still do not know why V6 and TV do not work. May try again in the future when V6 has got over teething problems.
Great service from Customer Services and engineer.
option 1 - turn the V6 box into standby and then turn he TV off. When you want to watch TV, make sure the TV is fully on before bring the V6 box on.
option 2 - use the TV as normal, but select another hdmi input first and then return to the hdmi input with the V6 connected...this way it renegotiates HDCP. On my old Sony TV I have to have a valid hdmi source, Amazon fire stick in my case, on the other HDMI input.
