I'm really sorry to learn about the problems you're experiencing with your TiVo box lately.
I'd like to take a closer look at this from our end but I've not been able to accurately locate your account information using your forum details unfortunately. So I can do that, could you respond to the private message I've sent with the requested information?
You can view the message by clicking the envelope on the top right of this page.
Sending an engineer is the default response from the overseas call centre. They seem to be keen to end the call and get an engineer booked as soon as possible. If you can get through to a UK based call handler they tend to be a lot more helpful.
Sending an engineer will do nothing for the speed of the box, regardless of the signal levels.
It really doesnt impact the box unless you have a lot of noise on the line, if the levels are way out of spec, and i mean way out or if the return path is high. But none of these would cause a slow box anyway, they all have their tell tale signs from blocky picture to loss of OD.
It would seem that as Virgin have introduced new features and software updates the box cant handle the extra work its being asked of. Maybe the updates were in preparation for the new box, but instead of streamiling what was once a great box, its now absolutly shocking.
When the box was first introduced it was very fast, youtube loaded quickly as did all other apps, now it seems changing channel it too much.
