Is the TiVo box not very good or is it mine?

My TiVo box runs so slow I'm thinking of leaving does everyone experience this problem.

no - mine is fine

 AFAIK, no one has ever solved / explained why some folks' boxes are much slower than others

One thing to consider: Since VM take their equipment back, then put it a through a clean-n-screen process before passing it on to another customer. There will be more than a few STBs out there with old hard drives that aren't aging so gracefully. Therein sectors of them will be failing, the more sectors which fail, the longer things take to read (load) from the hard drive. This problem only expands over time until the hard drive fails.
