Tivo HD displays ''hdmi connection not permitted''
Tivo hd has been working with my toshiba 52hm84 dlp for almost a month and just now stopped working. I get the message ''hdmi connection not permitted' and can not view any content. I can stil see all of the tivo guides, just no live tv or recorded material.
Here's what I tried so far: * I have tried 4 different hdmi cables with no luck. * Xbox and another dvr work with the tv over hdmi * tivo works with a small tv over hdmi * Tivo over component works fine with the tv, but I don't want all of the extra wires
Note: I had this problem with hdmi before with the tv/tivo combination and when I moved I decided to give it another try. It worked for the month and than stopped working again.
Re: Tivo HD displays ''hdmi connection not permitted''
This happened to me many times with my Sharp 40" LCD. I am actually running 2 tvs of of 1 HD Tivo. One in the bedroom with HDMI and then through the wall into my kitchen tv via Component. ( yes whatever is on in the bedroom plays in the kitchen).. So this AM my power dropped out for a few seconds then came back on. When the Tivo rebooted I got that " hdmi connection not permitted" message. In the past, I would just reboot everything and all would be ok.. But today I couldnt get the tv with the HDMI to display the programming. It would show the tivo menus, but when I tried to play anything or watch live tv, the message would pop up again. The kitchen TV with the components was working the whole time... So finally I rebooted the Tivo one more time. But this time I left the HDMI cable unplugged from the Sharp in the bedroom untill the Tivo was fully booted and a live channel was playing in the kitchen. I then plugged the HDMI back into the bedroon TV, and it came back on. Im not saying this will work for you, But its worth a try

The problem is with the HDMI cable this some time make the receiver to lock try to use a RF cable instead this will fix the issue or try to use different video and audio cables mentioned in the manual .
1) Connect the Tivo using the coax output of the cable box into the cable input of the Tivo
2) Exchange cable boxes with your cable provider for one with composite output jacks. It may require you to use a Motorola box that isn't High def depending on what your provider has. I know Comcast has a Motorola HD tuner that has composite outputs as well as component.
3) Upgrade to a Series 3 Tivo. Those units are designed for High Def. Use HDMI cable hookup.
Yes, the Tivo will just record in standard definition, instead of high def.
You can still hook the two up together, though.
What I would suggest (and have done in the past) is this: Split the cable coming out of the cable box. Hook one up to your HD cable box, and the other up to the Tivo. Hook the output of your HD cable box to one HD input on your TV Hook the output of your Tivo up to a different (non-HD) input on your TV.
This will allow you to watch HD while recording standard definition, and vise versa.
Running the HD through the Tivo will work, but will limit you to not be able to watch HD through it.
It sucks that you can't dial in anymore, but if you have broadband internet there is an easy solution. You can buy for about $20 on Newegg a LiInksys USB200M USB ethernet adapter that allows your Tivo to connect to the Tivo service using your broadband internet. If you modem is in fact dead, this may be the only chance you have at getting Tivo to connect again. I have 2 SD-H400 and I don't (and have never) use the telephone line. I use the broadband connection only and have never had a problem.
Even if you don't have broadband you can get this to work with the USB200M and dial up too. You'll have to connect to your dial up provider using your PC, then set your PC up to use Windows built in "Internet Connection Sharing". You then connect your Tivo to you PC using an ethernet cable. If the cable goes directly from the Tivo to the PC, you'll need a crosswired or crossover ethernet cable. If you have a network switch or network hub in between, you can use a regular network cable. Use your Tivo menus to "Connect to the Tivo Service Now" and it should connect and get any Guide or Software Updates that are available. Keep in mind this will be painfully slow as dial up internet is much slower than broadband.
This problem could also be caused by a recent switch in telephone connection. If you are now using a Voice Over IP (VOIP) telephone, I don't think Tivo will connect with that type of phone line. You're only option then will be the USB200M and some type of network connection to the internet.
Most likely your HDMI card is defective. If you have a free component spot on your tv, use component. You'll get the same great picture as HDMI, just have to use 5 cables instead of 1. You also won't have to deal with the annoying HDCP problems and HDMI. If you do not have a free component slot, make sure your HDMI cable is securing (don't push hard) in the HDMI connector on the tivo and on the tv. Also, check your video settings to ensure they aren't cranked up from the factory, but 99% of the time, it's the bad HDMI card in the unit, which can be repaired. I recommend ccs corp in Indiana, I've used them in the past and they're great.
