Okay. I have no cable box. Cable into the RF input on the new Sony Tivo. Composite video & audio outs from the Sony Tivo into my Sony VCR. Keep the VCR outs as is; video into the tv, audio into the receiver. The switch on the Tivo is set to "3." Channel on the VCR is set to "3." Turn the Tivo on and I only get a blue screen; no "Welcome To Tivo" comes up as the manual says. Unplug, try again, no joy. I removed the cable and plugged it back into the RF In on the VCR. Got my tv feed as usual. Somehow, the Tivo isn't passing the signal to the VCR. I've hooked uo home theaters for years but I'm stymied by this. Any clues?
