TiVo box stuck on starting up screen

Hi there. My TiVo box just suddenly went off and now it's stuck on the starting up screen. It has a flashing red light and a solid blue one. After a while all the lights come on and the process starts all over again. I have done a hard reset severally no change .

Re: TiVo box stuck on starting up screen

I've just been having the same issue since last night!! I've got an engineer booked but I wonder if it's a software update that has toasted our TiVo boxes now!

It's working again now. Didn't do anything to it. I will see how it works today to decide if engineer is needed.

Re: TiVo box stuck on starting up screen

Hi Tynitiny and good morning Smiley Happy

 

Thank you for taking the time to reach out to the Community for the first time, it's great to meet you.

 

I'm very sorry to read that there has been some issue on the 'Starting up' screen on the TiVo. I can see that recently the TiVo box was used to select different channels, giving the idication of it being online now?

 

I hope that things are much better now and if not, please let me know.

 

Ben

Re: TiVo box stuck on starting up screen

Thank you Ben. I think he box was updating and installing software because same thing happened yesterday night but this time it showed on the screen that it was installing software and all the lights were flashing. This went on for a while but it was ok later and box was working fine as usual. No more issues at the moment. Thanks for replying

Re: TiVo box stuck on starting up screen

Hi there. My TiVo box has gone nuts since last night. It keeps starting up and showing some channels for a while then back to starting up again. All lights are on two red one green and the remaining three red and one blue. They are all on at the same time. It does not appear connected to the network . I have rebooted last night to no avail, just left it eventually and it keeps doing the same thing
