We've been having problems with our TiVo box for the last 4/5 days. Whenever we change channels the screen stays black for a long time and either a message comes up saying 'there is a problem on this channel' with error code W02 or it takes ages for the channel to work.
I phoned 150 yesterday and the person I spoke to did tests on the box which restarted it all - this only helped for about 30 minutes after then it started to slow down and error again?
Any help would be appreciated as it's getting very frustrating at the moment.
Just as an update to my earlier message, I have been on the phone again to customer services to be told there is no fault when they look into my service (not that I could hear what she was saying very well due to the loud noises of the call centre in the background).
If there is no fault with my service why is there now just a black screen with the W02 error message on it and the green light flashing constantly on the front of the TiVO box?
We had a visit from the technician today which ended up with us having a new box 'installed'. It's a nice looking box, just a shame we can't use it!
The technician installed the box and started up the guided setup and left me with the instructions of following the on screen instructions and that it would only take 10 minutes to set up? I ended up having to call Customer Services after 50 minutes of continuous trying to install the software and unplugging the box to no avail.
We have to wait now until Thursday 25th for another technician to come and have a look at the box again, so no TiVO until then - we're just lucky we have the V+ box upstairs we can bring down to watch.
Oh the technician said that (as stated in other posts) the W02 error is down to the updates from just over a week ago not working well with some TiVO boxes.
Very sorry to hear this has happened regarding your TiVo® box.
I have been able to locate your account and I would just like to check whether the technician has contacted you since or if the issue has been resolved as I'm unable to find an appointment that's been booked for the 25th.
We haven't heard anything from the technician, I have had no texts to confirm or anything. I'm hoping it's not been cocked up again as when a technician was booked through the forums a week ago it was cancelled and they never turned up - leading to me talking to someone on the online chat window on the Virgin Media website who arranged another technician to come (they looked and couldn't see anything about a technician being booked - that's when they arranged the visit for Monday).
I'm now hoping that someone will turn up today as the brand new TiVO box is just sitting gathering dust at the moment.
Just chatted to someone on the online chat again on the Virgin website and you were correct - the technician had NOT been booked like the advisor on 150 told me they had!
I am hoping that the technician will now turn up tomorrow (between 8 and 12) as has just been arranged and if he does arrive I will be making sure he stays to finish the whole installation process this time and not leaving when it is starting to install the software on the box.
So hopefully tomorrow morning I will have a fully functioning TiVo Box installed again. (If not I think we will be downgrading and getting rid of the TiVo completely after the last few weeks)
