TiVo Box. DAB radio. Is there an option to show track information like there was with my old VPlus box?

We have just upgraded to the TiVo box but can't find anyway of getting it to display information regarding the current artist and track that is playing on a Digital radio channel. This is a pretty basic function of a standalone DAB radio and was available on our old VPlus box.

Hi Heady2008,

 

The TV guide will have the radio show on currently and the artist would be something that is provided to us from the broadcasting. The 'Info' button should give you some brief information on the show at hand only.

 

Thank you for coming in and welcome into the Community Smiley Happy

 

Take care.

 

Ben

The radio channels on Virgin are derived from satellite services (the same ones Freesat & Sky customers use). The information you see will therefore be what is provided on this service, & will be further dependant on the firmware in the box you are using.

Thanks for the reply. I assume that, as my old V+ box was capable of displaying the track info, Virgin must broadcast this info for digital radio channels. I do find it rather odd that the newer Tivo box, presumably shipped with the latest firmware, can't display it. Seems a backward step and don't get me started with how slow it is to navigate through the menus!

Hi heady2008,

 

Thanks for posting!

 

If the TiVo® is running a bit slow, there's a little trick you can try to remove unnecessary background data to help speed up the box.

 

Just go the Home screen and press Thumbs Down, Thumbs Up, Play, Play. You'll hear a 'ping' noise and the screen will go blank for a few seconds.

 

Once the screen comes back on you should notice the TiVo speed up!

 

Hope that helps!  Smiley Very Happy
