Switching between recorded shows (TiVo) and live TV lags.

I'm consistently getting a lag, or momentary black screen of sometimes 10 seconds when switching between recorded and live tv, and sometimes between live channels.  It will also do it at times when changing the tv to other tasks.  By that I mean say while watching live tv if I hit the TiVo button to see the listing of shows I have recorded, the video display changes from a regular tv broadcast to the recorded show listing with the thumbnail of live tv still playing in the corner.  This will also cause a black screen delay before changing the display to this mode or back to live tv.

Anyone else seeing this kind of behavior with their DVR?

I have the same issue with my Tivo Premiere XL.  On another forum there was a suggestion to adjust your cable box to output only 720p video.  So on the Tivo I went into the video settings and found a section where you can check which video format you want to use.  I unchecked all of the options except for 720p.  But that did not fix the issue.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
