TiVo is so slow or it dies

My TiVo box keeps re-booting itself. On the previous two occasions I've been watching either something on my planner or Netflix and it just dies and reboots, reboots, reboots or I have to switch it off at the mains to actually get it to start up.

I am so fed up with this TiVo. If it's not uber slow it dies! I thought replacing the box would sort out the slowness. It didn't.

Re: TiVo is so slow or it dies

Hi The_Plodder,

 

Thanks for the post and sorry to hear you're having trouble with your TiVo rebooting.

 

I've run several checks on the feed to the TiVo and all seems ok from this end. Due to the nature of your issue though I feel it would be best if we get an engineer out to take a look at this for you.

 

I will send you a private message shortly which you can view via the purple envelope at the top right of the page.

 

Regards

Re: TiVo is so slow or it dies

Does it happen at around 10 or so minutes past?  This was one of the symptoms I saw. See the other thread I just posted to if it sounds familiar

Re: TiVo is so slow or it dies

I hadn't notice what the time is, all I know is it happens frequently! It was slow previously, had the box exchanged (that was traumatic in itself - I had to complain) and ever since the update late last year it's even slower. I have an engineer visit planned for Thursday so finger's crossed!
