TiVo Sound Effects and Dolby Digital Audio

    • When a TiVo is connected with Digital Audio (HMDI), TiVo sounds effects won't play during Live TV or recordings with a Dolby Digital audio track

      • This is normal, the TiVo automatically selects the Dolby Digital track to record the highest quality sound possible

      • To conserve memory and disk space, TiVo software doesn't include sound effects with these tracks

    • TiVo sound effects are heard while navigating through TiVo menus and screens, and while viewing programs that do not include a Dolby Digital audio track
