Overheating Tivo box mesasge.

Good afternoon staff, i had my tivo on today (main living room box) and after about an hour or so I was presented with a black screen advising the box was ovberheating, to clear vents and call virgin media. The box was turned off and has nowbeen put back on and seems ok.

 

The box felt warm underneath, but ok everywhere else.
Can this be checked remotely, as obviously this is not something I'm too comfortable ignoring.

 

Thanks

Has it been sunny and the box directly in the sun?

Not at all. It's very hot today, box is on a wooden floor and hidden under a TV unit with plenty of room all around it. Not on line of sun either.

Hi Jaztim,

 

Thank you for coming in again, you're no stranger here Smiley Happy

 

That message can strike a notion of worry no doubt, sorry about that. 

 

I've had a look and everything is looking really healthy this end, all your signal levels and power levels are working well, which is great. 

 

I would say that if you find this message popping up in the future and there's nothing obstructing the vents on the top and sides of the box let me know, I'll have this looked into.

 

Take care and all the best Smiley Happy

 

Ben
