Tivo Box Has a Mind Of It's Own!

Yet again, I have had to get up in the middle of the night to switch off my TV as my relatively new Tivo box has developed a mind of it's own.

I can't tell you how spooky it is to hear voices downstairs in the early hours!

The box also plays other tricks.

Part way through watching a programme on delay, it will take me back to the beginning.

Banner randomly appears whilst watching TV.

Volume appears to change daily.

Stop button doesn't work when watching in delay.

Come on Virgin - my old box was so much better, and this one simply doesn't work!

Re: Tivo Box Has a Mind Of It's Own!

Have rebooted and still having problems.

If I am recording a programme, but also watching, as I did this evening, phone rings and I pause so I'm in delay. Continue watching, get to the end of the programme, still on delay and continue watching the news. After 5 minutes the box reverts to live TV and I've lost the news.

This thing simply has a mind of it's own and needs replacing.

Hi learning2me,

 

Thanks for posting!

 

Sorry to hear you're having trouble with your TiVo®.

 

I've run some diagnostics on your box and I can see a few issues there. I've sent you a private message (purple envelope at the top right of your screen) so I can arrange a technician appointment.

 

Look forward to hearing from you!  Smiley Very Happy
