TiVo went off whilst watching preparing channel information

Is there a problem with TiVo in Wallasey area? Was in the middle of watching tele then suddenly all channels went off saying either off air or contact virgin. Unplugged box and is now stuck on preparing channel information 25%. After a while it asks to try again. I've gone to help and connect to my TiVo but this doesn't work either. I was right in the middle of a film and was recording 2 channels!

Watching a recorded program as that is all I can do at the moment. Just pressed stop but the program is still playing. So strange. Definitely pressed stop as the menu is up asking if I want to resume playing

Re: TiVo went off whilst watching preparing channel information

My tv went off half hour ago with the same problem, I'm in S-O-T.  Unplugged it, waited 30 seconds, plugged back in and all I've got now is nothing but 'Starting up....' on the screen.  It's ok on my ipad and thankfully I have freesat connected too so I can watch basics.

Hope it gets sorted soon, last month it went off all day and the internet.   I should've stuck to Sky I think.  Smiley Frustrated

It's the same in Royton too. 

Some advice..... if you have a tito you can still watch your recorded shows  unless you try and reboot. It appears to be a general problem so avoid the reboot and catch up on your recordings
