TiVo switching to you tube!

So for the last few weeks, I can be sat watching a programme on my TiVo box and it will suddenly pop up to a red screen with the waiting circle, then next thing you tube has been loaded up.  It has just done it again tonight! Any ideas? Anyone experiencing the same thing? It's driving me mad...

Re: TiVo switching to you tube!

The only way this could be happening is the DIAL feature. So someone on your wifi network is accidentally (or deliberately) launching YouTube on your box.

I think you can stop it happening via the settings > devices > network remote control (I think that that's the name of the setting). Or just pull out the ethernet cable from your tivo which most people probably don't need anyway.

Re: TiVo switching to you tube!

Hi Mian210

 

Welcome to the Community, I'm sorry to learn about the inconvenience you're experiencing lately.

 

As adrianm has mentioned, it;s likely that someone who has paired their device to the TiVo before is accidentally casting the video they're watching.

 

When YouTube loads, does it load to a video or the main menu?

 

Apologies again for the inconvenience caused, we're looking forward to hearing from you

Craig

Re: TiVo switching to you tube!

This is not the case, mine switches to You Tube when there's no one else here?

my neighbors are with Sky so it can't be them - there was a fault found last time to do with updates but not sure exactly

Hi Topic63,

 

Thanks for posting!

 

Sorry to hear you're having trouble with this too.

 

Are you still experiencing issues with this?

How often does it happen?

Have you rebooted the TiVo® box recently?

 

Speak soon Smiley Very Happy
