Hi

we had the same problem with our Tivo box, it turned out to be the hard drive failing. It stopped starting up after a couple of weeks and the box had to be replaced.

Re: Tivo box clicking !!!!

How old are your boxes?

I am finding the median failure rate of hard drives in Talktalk Boxes is 3 years and Tivo boxes around 4 years!

Tivos use Seagate 500 gb desktop drives.

Talktalk boxes uses WDC 320Gb laptop drives.

Re: Tivo box clicking !!!!

Definitely give us a call if you haven't yet!
Could be the hard drive. Is there enough space around the TiVo for ventilation?


I work for Virgin Media but all comments here are my own!
