Tivo Switch from scart to hdmi output

Hi. Im after some help. My Mother has a Tivo box connected to her tv via scart lead. Today her new LG tv came, i unpacked and swithced her tivo off, swapped tvs and connected an hdmi lead from tivo to new tv. I can see menus but get no sound or tv. I seem to think that a while ago I had to manually reset the output by pressing buttons on the front. Plugged the old tv in through scart and all is ok so suspect the box needs switching from scart to hdmi but cant find anything on the menus to do this


Can anyone help please
Thanks Ian

Re: Tivo Switch from scart to hdmi output

Using your TV remote … look for 'Source' (or similar in 'Settings' ) ..It will show as many HDMI connections as you have slots on back of TV.. With Tivo box ON - (and HDMI connected at each end TV/TIVO) … select each selection option of HDMI offered in 'TV Source List' in turn until you see 'Connecting to Input' (or similar) … This will then automatically setup … (this will equate to the HDMI slot (eg. 1/2/3 etc) the HDMI is attached to) … ZvnK ...

Hi. I'm sure that the tv has recognised the tivo box, as you press home i can see the menu and all of the recordings that are stored on the box. If i select play i can see the counter counting as if its playing but showing a blank screen

That means the tv isn't sending a handshake signal, copyright protection then kicks in to prevent programs being recorded

Firstly try rebooting the tivo just in case it's an issue of never having a HDMI port used before, try a different port on the TV  and try just unplugging it and plugging back in again
