Okay... got a tivo series two 40 hour for Christmas. Naturally I'm having some problems with it. I've tried to solve them myself to no avail. When the tivo is running (which is always, something I didn't know) and I turn on my dvd player, I get a gray, horizontal bar running on the tv. In the dvd video it runs right to left, and on the tivo video it runs left to right. I've tried swaping a/v cables on both boxes, and that didn't work, and I even tried a different dvd player into the same video in, and the problem was still there. I thought might have been the video in on the TV, but I hooked up tivo to it and the bar wasn't there when the dvd player was on. The only solution i've found it unplugging the tivo when I watch a dvd. What would cause such interference? In the setup I have the tv (27 inch no name) a no name dvd player, and the tivo. I am also using an old (but good stereo) as the dvd player speakers. Luckily if the TV is the culprit I have a service contract with Best Buy, but I really need to figure out whats causing it. I called tivo, tech support was no help (she thought I had the tivo hooked up to the dvd player?) and their forums were no help. It just seems like a stupid problem that should have an easy, simple solution. Thanks in advance.
