When you say "switch the box on", do you mean power on or from standby?
If you have no video output from your TiVo/V6 to your TV, the most likely reasons are either the wrong HDMI input is selected on the TV, or the V6 is sending a signal your TV can't decode (unsupported resolution, for example)
A video test is part of the V6 boot sequence.
