Re: Display shows very very faint image. Can't turn...

Sounds as though your back light for the LCD may have gone. It is not a job the DIY repairer can easily complete therefor you should return it to Archos or a certified repair center for an estimate. If it is in warranty Archos MAY cover it, though if they deem it has been dropped will likely charge you.

Lately the tv displays a b&w negative image instead of color. Unplugging and replugging the TiVo T800 (and waiting for the reboot) fixes the problem for awhile. Any ideas?

Strange. Are you sure it's the TiVo at fault? I'm thinking when you turn off the unit and back on again you're actually forcing your TV/Monitor into the correct input. When it next goes into black and white, try selecting different TV AV inputs, normally a square or circle with an arrow in it on the remote control.
If this fixes it, I'd suggest that you have another piece of equipment connected to your TV that's fighting for control.

No sound through Iomega Pro HD on the TV, but works on laptop

I have a similar problem. When I first used it, it was OK but one day after a week or so, I've lost sound. When I put the volume of the TV to the maximum, I can hear it but it is still faint. Another problem/dissatisfaction I have is that the high resolution pictures are not displayed as good as my similar resolution PC monitor. I am dissapointed in that regard but I will still keep the device if I can fix the sound. I will call the tech support tomorrow.

Visual fault

Are you sure this is only while watching tv with the reciver?? Try watching a dvd or video. Sounds like a burn in line on a tube or lcd type projection set. Let us know please and a picture would help if possible?
