  • Easily get an HDMI switch with an additional HDMI cable, and link them to the existing cable. This has actually worked to remove the HDMI conflicts in the lab tests. It’s easy to get the HDMI switch for just $10 at many retail and online locations.
  • When you are being ready to switch off the TV after accessing the TiVo mini, first you need to put down the mini into the standby mode and then switch off the TV. When you switch it on again, you should be able to view the TiVo mini again without any reboot.
  • Access the component video cables (red, blue, and green) in the place of the HDMI cable. This will need to access a separate audio cable, as well.

Ethernet Conflict/MoCA

To decide whether your network is causing the reboots simply answer the following questions:

Do you have the MoCA enabled?       

  • If no, then your network is not causing the reboot. Move to the HDMI conflict.
  • If yes, then move on to next question.

Do you also get the Ethernet connection to the TiVo mini?

  • If no, then move on to HDMI Conflict.
  • In the case of yes, if you have Ethernet and MoCA enabled, simply disable one or the other and view that the rebooting problem goes away or not.
