I have just bought a new Sony Bravia and every time I change channel on my remote the sound on the tv goes silent. I have to switch the tv off and on and the sound reruns until the next channel change. Does anyone have the same problem and has overcome it ?
This is a long standing issue with the TiVO and some televisions. What is happening is that the TV/TiVO communication is going wrong and the handshake over HDMI between the two fails. I get it with my new LG TV, actually a little more frequently than with the previous LG TV - but the problem has always been there. It is not soluble (AFAIK) because I suspect different TV manufacturers and TiVO have slightly different implementations of the HDMI handshake protocols.
