TiVo 1tb - starting, bright lights, stopping.

2 months in, we've come home from a day out to "Starting up" ( no clock ) and various sets of lights displayed. Looping.
Did a power cycle, a remote service from web, spoke to 150, best they can offer is an engineer in 3 days time !!

Does anyone know a routine for an alternative type of restart that may help in the meantime ??

Re: TiVo 1tb - starting, bright lights, stopping.

No because it sounds like your box has failed. Sorry. And IMO three days is acceptable. You would wait a week for a washing machine engineer or similar!

Hi ChrisN1974,

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

Sorry to hear you've had a bit of TiVo® trouble.

 

I've located your account and I can see the technician has been out to sort this for you. Is everything working OK now?

 

Let me know if you need anything.

 

All the best Smiley Very Happy

Thanks Josh.
Looks like we had a dead HDD on box 1 (only had 3 months), box 2 wouldn't activate for the engineer, so now we're on box 3.
All seems to be up and running, with the added bonus of Ash vs Evil Dead series 2 now being available on demand 😂
Cheers !!
