TiVo box

hi

Is anyone else having issues with the menu on the TiVo box. It seems to be really slow moving around within.

I did do a reboot of the machine but no difference. Can't wait to the TiVo 2,hope it's a better machine.

Re: TiVo box

Hi anthony_b, 

 

Thanks for your post and apologies to hear that your TiVo® is running a little slow Smiley Sad 

 

Usually a little reboot helps to refresh things and clears any slowness. Checking the stats of your box, all is looking pretty good. 

 

How full is the box, recordings wise? Have you got anything on there that perhaps you can delete? 

 

What about suggestions? Do you have these active or switched off?

 

Let me know.

 

Thanks,

There are very few people who will deny Virgin's Tivo being slow. It is pretty much 1990's technology bloated with some new features that it wasn't designed for. The next update makes it worse due to adding more pictures and bluring of on demand content with normal tv. Don't believe any nonsense about "how full it is" as the operating system is fully multi-partitioned, so that is totally irrelevant. If you do a search you will see how widely reported it is.

Re: TiVo box

Hi anthony_b,

Thanks for getting back to us with the requested information.

I'd like to check a little further if that's ok?  How recently did things start going slow?  Do you find it happens all the time or is better or worse at specific times of the day?

I have had an initial look at your box remotely and all looks fine signal wise.  Also there's no high demand issues present on the network which I'm pleased to report.

Keep me posted and we can check further.

Collette. Smiley Happy

Re: TiVo box

Hi Collette

Seems to happen all the time so whether it's moving down on any of the menus within the TiVo.

It's been happening for a while

I hope TiVo 2 will be better 👍

Re: TiVo box

Delete, reboot, update, dance the fandango...

...do what you like to fix the problem people but just to confirm

The TiVo box in it's current format is not built for the purpose it is being used.

The platform is outdated and is akin to running today's software on a windows machine equipped with ME.

My old V+ box outstrips the TiVo box on performance every, single time.

The box needs a huge rethink. I only keep it because Sky/BT are pants for BB otherwise, ta ra chuck!

Re: TiVo box

I hate to say this but I think that response is right. I have had the issue since I have had the box. I do hope when TiVo 2 comes out we get it for a reduced or a replacement
