Black Lines from top to bottom
about two centemeters appart are 4 black lines on the right side of the screen. There are two of these on the middle of the screen. The lines are not thick, nor are they full lines, they have small spaces between them, and look very much like this:
___ _ _ __ _ _ _ ___
_ ________ _ _ _ _ _
Except that they go from top to bottom, not left to right.
While tv is playing, the lines aren't always visible entirely, sometimes one or two, or all of them are not visible, and it seems to depend on what objects are in the picture, for example, sometimes they only show up on a jean jacket, and not the surrounding area.
I have a tivo series 2, I did not have this problem with my series one, which I removed two days ago. I have tried switching to svideo connection to the tv, and I am now using an RCA cable to my digital cable box.
I have tried plugging the RCA cable from the digital cable box directly into the tv, and the video feed is fine. It is the connection from the cable box to the tivo, because the tivo menus are not afflicted, and recorded tivo programs still have it.
My tivo series 2 is version 4.0-01-2-140, and had been used on another previous tv with directtv before, working fine.
Has anyone experienced or heard of this problem? I've done a search through the tivo community and tech support help forums without finding any solutions.
