Hello to all,
I have recently purchased a new Tivo HD XL after being completely ticked off at my crummy Time Warner DVR for the last time. Unfortunately the picture on my 2003 JVC is completely washed out and discolored through the digital connection. The Tivo uses HDMI and my JVC uses DVI, so I have an HDMI to DVI cable connecting the two. This arrangement works fine with my Marantz DVD player and with my cable DVR, but not with the new Tivo.
The Tivo people tell me that my TV is probably too old to work with the newer HDMI, but I thought that it was backwards compatible. Can anyone tell me if they are correct? If it is a problem with the unit, I'd like to exchange it.
Finally, if it is a problem with my TV, is there any way to fix it? Can I run the signal through some external device that could convert the signal correctly? I don't want to use a receiver, but perhaps some other stand-alone device?
Thanks, in advance, for any input.
