Ticking Tivo

Hi

After years of faithful service my Tivo box gave up the ghost and the hard drive got corrupted. I was sent a new one 4 weeks ago. Set up was fine and it worked ok until last night when it just cycled start up continuously - fixed this morning after calling 150.

My real issue with this new box is the loud ticking noise 10-20 times a day for 2-3 minutes at a time. It is louder than the surround sound. Happens at random times of the day but mostly in the evening when it is most annoying. It is not set to record or anything it just does it. If I'm watching a recording or Netflix when the ticking starts then the picture freezes. I thought it was as it's a new box but it does it every day without fail.

Re: Ticking Tivo

Hi Oscargps9,

 

A warm welcome to the community Smiley Happy

 

I'm sorry to hear that your new box isn't behaving very well.  I can see you have an engineer calling round to check this out for you which is great to see.

 

It would be super if you could let me know how you get on after the engineer visits Smiley Happy  I'm here to help if you need anything, keep me posted.
