TV Pixelation

Can anyone help or advise. For sometime now we have been experiencing pixilation on our tv. We have now purchased a 49inch Sony 4k tv and the problem seems to be worse. Is this problem caused by the TiVo?

Re: TV Pixelation

The modems in the TiVo are only capable of (I think) 10Mbit. If you're trying to watch HD and you have a lot of congestion it's possible it could be that. You should rule out everything else though such as trying another HDMI cable and resetting your TiVo.

How long is your HDMI lead?

Re: TV Pixelation

It could be signal issues which you can have assessed if you give them a ring.

Re: TV Pixelation

Do you have broadband as well? What are your speeds like? Pixelation is likely to be either the lead connecting your set top box to the TV (have you tried another?), the quality of the channel (are you watching HD channels?) or lack of bandwidth.

Re: TV Pixelation

Yes I do have broadband and the speed does vary considerably although I have not checked it during the evening when the pixilation problem seems to be worse. I will be contacting VM later today and report the problem.

?!?!?!?

The modem within the TiVo has nothing to do with broadcast TV.

Ring in and get your signal levels assessed.
