The problem is intermittent (yuck!) but can be triggered sometimes by pressing the TiVo Central button on the TiVo remote.
I should add that the TiVo has functioned flawlessly for the past few months; the only change in my setup was the swap out of a Sharp LC-52D92U for the 5080, which I did yesterday. Problems started when I was programming the TiVo remote to operate the 5080. I can't imagine how IR programming a remote could trigger this mess, but that seems to be what's happening. All the Picture settings (D-Nice's) on the 5080 are unchanged though.
I have ruled out bad HDMI cables and it does not occur with other video sources (Wii, Denon 2930CI) which are also running through the AVR. Could be a bad HDMI port on the Series 3 I suppose.
Local Pioneer service rep insists it's an HDMI handshake issue and told me that "Pioneer doesn't support HDMI since it is a flawed protocol" and recommended I use component to carry video from the AVR to the 5080.
Anyone else having any issues with the TiVo Series 3?
I have an S3 with a 6070 and I think I know what may be happening.
Go into your HDMI setup and verify that its on "auto". If it isn't, change it to that.
This has to do with the type signal that its expecting. Evidently, on the S3, its changing the output on certain screens. If its any consolation, my S3 remote (which I do like) triggers my CO detector's test circuit....and its very loud, especially at 2 in the morning. I have to be careful where I aim the remote.
