Hi all,

I have a Philips Series 1 TIVO that is fed with an AV signal from my Saturn Digital STB. It's been running pretty reliably for a couple of years apart from the odd freeze up, but even these have pretty much disappeared since I moved it to the NZ image a while back.

It has however started to exhibit some video instability. Live TV appears as two images offset horizontally and flickering. The TIVO menus also appear to wrap around the screen horizontally. Restarting fixes the problem, although anything that has been recorded while it's in this state remains corrupted so it would appear to be some kind of sync issue at the video input.

Up until about two months ago I had seen the problem about two or three times over the previous couple of years. It has now happened three or four times in the last two months or so, so it looks like something is dying.

I'd love to hear from anyone who has experienced this problem or thinks they might know what's going wrong.
