I don't believe the TiVo will output to both scart and HDMI at the same time. Try disconnecting the scart and trying HDMI only.

Did you try resetting the box after swapping to HDMI? Or turn it off completely, connect the HDMI cable only then turn on again.

If that doesn't work then maybe you have a duff HDMI port.

Maybe this is just an omission in your post, but you don't mention any sort of video cable from the TiVo to the Home Theatre, you say there's an optical cable from the TiVo to the Home Theatre which will carry the audio signal, but you also need a video cable (HDMI would be best) from the TiVo to the Home Theatre (in which case you wont need to the optical cable) or from the TiVo directly to the projector in which case you'd still need the optical cable to get the audio.

Dear Tavis

You are right. I have nothing but the optical connection from Tivo to home theatre. 

So pl explain 

The home theatre has only 1 HDMI port

Tivo has only 1 HDMI and one scary

Tv has 2 HDMI

1x usb and scary. 

Many thanks

Re: Tivo box to home theatre and projector

You will need to run an HDMI cable from the TiVo to the projector, the optical cable from the TiVo to the Home Theatre and the SCART from the TiVo to the TV (or for a better picture on the TV, buy an HDMI splitter and use that to run an HDMI cable from the TiVo to both the TV and the projector).

That should give you a picture on both the TV and the projector (assuming the TiVo can output to SCART and HDMI at the same time, which I think it can but if not you'll need to go with the HDMI splitter or only connect one of either the TV or projector at the same time) and you should get the audio from the TiVo out of the Home Theatre.

The only thing you wont get is audio from the TV on the Home Theatre but that's only an issue if you wanted to use the TV's built in tuner, rather than watching TV through the TiVo, and there may be ways round that if your TV supports ARC (which would then allow you to connect the TV to the Home Theatre using the HDMI connection) .
