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!

Hi Webster693,

 

Thanks for posting in the community.

 

I'd like to arrange for a technician to take a look at this for you so I'm just going to send you a private message with appointment times which you will find if you click on the purple envelope at the top right of the screen.

 

Talk to you soon
