So recently on and off we have been getting W02 error code on channels and tivo box generally not working.
Had engineer here today who said its a signal problem, went away and fumbled in the cab. Came back and said yep signal is fine. All good so far..
Now he reboots the tivo box and low and behold, its now in a boot loop. Odd. Even with the W02 problem it rebooted everytime and allowed us to catch up on recordings.
I honestly don't think the engineer had much idea what was going and just said leave it overnight see if it comes back on..
Now the dilemma, missus has 6 weeks worth of recordings she needs to catch up on, and we don't want to loose any series links
Is there anyway these can be backed up in anyway shape or form, or does anybody know anything I can check to see if I can get the tivo box to boot back up?
Further info on my setup: we have a single coax that comes off a wall box, then splits into two cables (one for broadband and one for tivo) so it shouldn't be a signal problem (broadband runs fine at 152mb)
Kinda wish I wouldnt have let the engineer reboot and brick my tivo box grr
If I recall right you can use the SCART port to back a recording to DVD recorder - but you have to have be viewing the recording all the way through for it to be recorded by the DVD recorder. So you may as well watch the recordings if you can get it loading again, as TiVo saving out via SCART is very basic.

I spent about an hour onto your 'tech' support team to transfer series links etc to be told because I'm not in the US it isn't possible. Send the person an email with a link to the virgin site that says its possible!
She was then even more confused.
It was actually starting to get hilarious from my point, and whilst on hold I googled the problem, found another thread on here with a link that shows your hidden box to transfer from, clicked transfer and that was it all done.
Your lovely tech support lass then took me off hold, apologised, and advised because I no longer have my old tivo box (it wasn't booting anyway!) it was impossible to transfer the series links etc.
I laughed and said don't worry love, I've done it via google anyway!
Hmm, that is a little interesting to see and a little worrying!
