My tivo box was installed on Monday. It stopped working on Wednesday night. After an hour on hold and then getting cut off I gave up on 150 and went to bed. It was back on in the morning. Then it happened again 20 minutes ago. I went online for Virgin to test it and it came back on. However, it is proving a lot more unreliable than my V+ box.
Has anyone any idea what is happening before I'm forced to ring 150 again?
Thank you for coming in and posting your message, welcome into the Community.
When the TiVo goes down it's never the best, my apologies on this. I have ben able to test the TiVo services and I was able to find that one of the signal input levels aren't what they should be.
I would like to get this looked into and adjusted by an engineer. If you can have a little look inside your 'Inbox', you'll see I've sent you a 'Private Message'. You can find this at the top right of the page, purple envelope
The bloody thing has been cutting out all night again. I'm presently waiting to speak to customer services. After being told i'd have a 3 minute wait, I have now waited 10 minutes. Last Wednesday night I waited 45 minutes and then got cut off without speaking to anyone. Tried again and then the same thing happened. 10 more minutes and I'll be trying their disconnections line. I am thoroughly peed off with this now. And they have the gall to announce price increases!!!!!
Apparently there is nothing wrong with my box or line.....................they can tell this from their end. But they are going to monitor it. I am now on hold waiting to speak to someone else to see how long I have left of my contract before i can move to Sky. Another night spent listening to their music instead of watching the tv that I pay for
Cheers. I need to phone in the morning to end my contract with them as, apparently, it's too late now. And you're right, both people I spoke to were from offshore call centres. The lady I spoke to about my contract did offer to send out an engineer. Strange that the other lady who was discussing my tivo box trouble didn't do the same. The virgin rep who pmed me on here wanted to sort an engineer visit out as tests showed that one of our boxes wasn't receiving properly. I thought it'd be easier to arrange by speaking to someone but ................
I can understand your frustration, getting contradictory information from agents definitely doesn't help!
Our diagnostics can sometimes vary depending on the signal strength at certain times of the day (peak times for example). This might explain the variety of answers you've received.
I've run diagnostics on your equipment and I can see an issue with the Input Signal. This is the signal that feeds your TV and Broadband services. To sort this out, we'd need to send a technician to manually adjust the signal levels.
I've sent you a private message (purple envelope at the top right of your screen) so I can arrange an appointment for you.
If you have any questions or need some more information around this then please let me know, I'm here to help!
Look forward to hearing from you!
