is there any known problems in Romford area today as haven't been able to watch anything through iplayer. Message said internet at fault but no problems watching on iPad through wifi and now have no tv service at all and TiVo shut down on its own. Also following previous problem with TiVo rebooting every morning at same time, my box is always switched on when I come down even though it's been put to sleep in evening
iplayer service has been erratic over the last few days!! Reboots are still happening early hours of each morning as finding box fully on each day apart from over the BH weekend but started again this morning
In regards to the BBC iPlayer issue can you expand a bit more on what exactly happens when you encounter a fault? Is it loading slowly/at all, buffering, cutting out, error messages etc? Does the same thing happen to other apps like Netflix or YouTube?
I have re-checked the box and all is still looking fine signal/power level wise. At this stage a little more details would be fab so I can help narrow down the cause.
In regards to the early morning reboots, we don't have a time scale to date yet. The maintenance being carried out we know is due to upgrade work but the reboots are to keep services online. What can be done to ensure the box goes back to sleep mode is you can adjust your power saving settings. If you follow these steps:
HOME > HELP & SETTINGS > SETTINGS > DEVICES > POWER SAVING SETTINGS > CHANGE TO 'SLEEP'
This option will ensure the TiVo® goes into standby after 2 hours of inactivity.
If you can please get back to me with more details of the issue with BBC iPlayer, that would be super.
