Ever since I originally purchased my Replay I have had this problem, when I change channels there is a blue screen that says "no video signal detected" for about 5 seconds before going to the video from the new channel. It happens on every channel. I have e-mailed ReplayTV.com about it a couple of times without getting it fixed. I have a RTV5060 with version 530501100 software. It is only connected to a Jarrold analog cable box by coax cable. The first time I e-mailed ReplayTV they told me that it would go away with the new version of software. It hasn't. No one seems to be able to correct this problem.


If there is anyone out there with any suggestions, please tell me. I have lived with this for about a year now and I just can't take it anymore.


Please Help

From what I recall this is due to poor signal strength on your cable tv. Perhaps if you try a signal booster.


I am sure there are others here that can give you better details.

Blue screen when using cable box is a different issue than than while using built in tuner. You can accept that its no big deal or the alternative is to adjust the cable box response delay. This puts up a black screen instead of the worrysome "no signal detected" screen. http://replayfaq.leavensfamily.com/D...ion=VXURGMPKTO

Vince,


I'm just guessing here, because I haven't used a cable box with my replay yet, but even without it there's a few second delay switching channels. I would imagine using a cable box with the IR blaster would delay this even more, so you may not be experiencing anything abnormal.


I find that once I had a Replay, channel surfing became a thing of the past, and if the urge hits me I just go to the TV's tuner to "surf". I know it's not a fix, but for me it works. Maybe you could run a separate feed from your cable box (split) into your Replay and your TV? That's assuming your not using the RF connector from your Replay to your TV.


* you might also try a different IR blaster...just a thought.

I tried the response delay. I was really thinking that it would work. Instead it just increased the length of black before the blue screen popped up. I know that it isn't a problem with my video signal. My VCR generates a menu screen so I hooked that up insead of the cable box but left all of the setting alone. It thought it was changing the channel, but the blue "no video detected" screen still popped up. I also tried hooking the cable box up by the video/audio ( I dont want to do this because it is mono ) and once again I received the "no video detected" blue screen inbetween channels.


am I really the only person that has this problem?
