I have TiVo box and Hub 3.0. TiVo is connected to my Philips Ambilight TV via HDMI cable in HDMI port 1. Quite frequently I get a TV message saying can not detect device on HDMI1. I can resolve this by either restarting my TiVo or by reinstalling my TV. Occasionally I can sort by changing the HDMI setting on my TV but that's not always the case.
It is a V6. This only happens when turning on TiVo and TV for the first time in the day. I have never had the problem once I've managed to connect. What I have noticed is, the order of turning on and off. If I turn off TV first then TiVo , then turn back on TiVo first then TV , I get the HDMI message. Very rarely get it if I turn on or off TiVo first.
Thanks for your post and welcome to the forums. It's great having you on board with us in the Community.
I'm really sorry to hear that your Philips Ambilight TV is having connection or compatibility issues with the V6 box.
It sounds like there may be a fault with the HDMI cable. Can you please try replacing the cable to see if this helps. It's also worth popping it in another HDMI slot on the TV too. This may well improve things.
I have ordered a new cable of a different brand, should be with me tomorrow. I will let you know how I get on.
I have tried swapping between HDMI ports , but problem is the same.
I've noticed a new problem today. Apps such as Netflix, BBC I Player, ITV Hub etc weren't loading. I clicked the App, the screen on my TV attempted to open but returned back to the Apps home page. I restarted my TiVo , which solved the problem. I am now thinking my TiVo or connectivity to the TiVo has a problem.
I will try the new HDMI first , see if that solves anything, and if not I will probably have to get Virgin technical team involved.
Well so far so good! Since replacing my brand new UHD 4k HDMI cable with another brand new UHD 4K HDMI cable (different brand), I've not had any issues. I will see how it goes over next couple of weeks before confirming my issue has been sorted.
