Hi there, our Tivo box is running really slow over the last week, we have reset the box a few times and still no better. just get a spinning wheel on screen for up to 5 minutes some time when trying to play or watch something, or change channel, or even setting up a recording.
There's a little trick you can try to help speed up the box by clearing unnecessary background data.
To do this, just go to the Home screen and on the remote control press Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down, Play, Play. The screen will go blank for a few seconds while the cache is being cleared. Once the screen comes back on, you should notice the box speed up!
Hope this helps!

I have had the same problem and used the same solution, but now a few weeks later it is the same. It doesnt seem like resetting the machine is the solution since those settings are partially memory for what you watch and suggestions for future shows.
My sense is that the old Tivo machine is simply not able to keep up
I have two of them, and they are the same, 2 seconds to change channels and all the other delays is not really usable speaking usability of tech.
Clearing the cache is a very short term solution and does not always help. No offence but it is a bit of an insult to customers intelligence to expect them to believe otherwise. What is needed is a long term solution or replacement.
