If that's happening on HDMI, check the component video output (red, green, blue plugs), and if that's not working, check the composite (yellow plug) output, and of course make sure the TiVo and video display device are in agreement on the resolution setting.
The TiVo Community Forum, a group of TiVo users (and not an official TiVo, Inc. site) is a good place to explore this issue in greater depth.
For some reason your Tivo is tripping the internal breaker of your TV. Check the cables and see that they are not damaged and are connected properly (all the cables that hook up to the Tivo). If you have a spare set of cables, try them to see if the TV still turns off.
the power supply is bad. I had to same problem with mine after a power outage. Luckily I had a spare TIVO series 2 receiver with an identical power supply. Popped it in the busted TIVO and I am back in business.
