Tivo box constantly 'wants to close down' press any key to continue. Anyone know why?

When I'm in the middle of watching a programme - recorded or live, I keep getting message that Tivo wants to close down and I must press any key to continue.   Very annoying if you can't find the remote quickly!  Why does it do this?

Because the powersave settings are set to "sleep if no activity"

 

go to  Help & Settings > Settings > Devices > Power Saving Settings.

and choose the option that works for you

 

  • Snooze, with Suggestions turned on - after being idle for 4 hours, your TiVo box will enter standby, Suggestions will be recorded.
  • Snooze, with Suggestions turned off – after being idle for 4 hours, your TiVo box will enter standby, Suggestions will not be recorded. This means you're running your TiVo box energy efficiently and speedily.
  • Sleep - to save the most power this mode means your TiVo box will go into standby after 2 hours of inactivity and Suggestions will not be recorded.

Or, you can switch your power saving off entirely.
