Sounds like a bad cable, but...

In Reply to: HDMI to DVI by SmokinHouse
I've adapted HDMI to DVI many times with no issues, so the failure can only be in one of three places, so you'll have to use the process of elimination to get to the bottom of it.
Here are the logical steps (and pardon the "basic" nature of this advice, but often it IS the simple things...):
1. Test the existing HDMI cable and the HDMI-to-DVI adaptor with a separate HDMI source and display. If you get a picture, the existing cable/adaptor set is okay.
2. Try another HDMI source with the same monitor using the now-verified-working cable set. If it fails, this points to a bad HDMI output on the TiVo. There could also be an "HDMI output setting" in the TiVo menu structure somewhere, so check that, too, as this would have direct bearing on the outcome. If it works with another HDMI source, and the original HDMI/DVI cable/adaptor set, the issue DEFINITELY rests in the TiVo.
3. Swap out the HDMI cable, then the adaptor, separately (once you know you have a working vid. monitor!)
4.5.& 6. There are other combinations but you get the idea from the above.
Hope this helps!
