I'd agree you most likely have your contrast set way too high. You can buy the Avia DVD (and another whose name I cannot recall right now) to set your DVD player. Then record a movie on Tivo and compare it to a DVD to get your Tivo settings correct. Hopefully you have a TV that remembers the settings for different inputs--it you don't--it's a PITA.

But beyond that, is there some reason you're leaving the Tivo on the Now Playing display (or some other screen)? It will revert to live TV after X number of minutes (I don't think you can change it), but there's really no reason you should be leaving it there in the first place.

I could care less if . . ..
