TiVo Box no longer connecting to TV

My TiVo Box doesnt appear to be connecting to my TV. Power supplies to both devices are ok.  There is some work going on in my area but this allegedly is only to do with the catch up and on demand service. Surely this should not interfere with entire transmission and leave me with a blank TV screen?

Any suggestions would be appreciated

Re: TiVo Box no longer connecting to TV

Is the HDMI lead connected to the correct port, and the correct port selected on your TV?

Nothing has changed as far as I know.  Went from working to not working.

Re: TiVo Box no longer connecting to TV

Have you checked your HDMI leads, and that the correct port on your TV is selected?

Do you get the TiVo menus etc if you press guide/menu/home etc?

If yes... then it could be an issue with your live TV channels, do you get any error messages onscreen, are you able to view OnDemand programmes etc?

If no.... then either your TiVo's video output isn't working, or your TV isn't picking it up or have it selected.

Still totally blank screen despite pressing every available button.

Think your second suggestion is the most likely.

Probably need to get an engineer out.

Thanks for your help

Re: TiVo Box no longer connecting to TV

Are you able to try another HDMI cable? Might save you the call and appointment if it's simple....

Re: TiVo Box no longer connecting to TV

Sorry to jump in here but this is the exact problem that I am having! I unplugged hdmi cable to plug in playstation, and TV was working fine, an hour later replaced tivo and screen is blank, all menus coming up but writing on it is slightly blurry and not in HD, have tried replacing cable but still nothing! Have got it plugged in via scart lead for now and have picture back!

Re: TiVo Box no longer connecting to TV

Thanks everyone for your interest.

Couldn't seem to make anything work so contacted 150.  They did some remote testing and decided that it was probably the TiVo Box at fault so have a technician booked to visit on Monday.  Fingers crossed!
