My 1TB Tivo box seems to reboot itself every couple of days, but then gets stuck in a loop. You can resolve this by switching off, unplugging and starting again. This will allow it to boot correctly. However the EPG wont fully update leaving lots of TBA on channels. Running the test from the website leads to a mesage of test inconclusive. I guess a call to 150 is required but really dont wont to lose the box for a replacement due to the amount of unwatched content their! Anyone have any suggestions that may help?
I'm really sorry to learn about the problems you're experiencing with your TiVo box at the moment, it's really not something we want for you.
I've been able to locate your account and run some tests on the set top box for you. We're detecting some issues from our end and I'd like to arrange for an engineer to come and take a closer look if you're available?

Engineer has just visited and after quickly looking through the diagnostics said he would need to replace box. Obviously with a lot of recordings on the box I really dont want this to happen. He said it could be a power supply problem so changed the power lead and placed some sort of filter thing to the cable feeds of box and internet. Also plugged straight to mains rather than extension lead. He asked me to call him back if problem reoccurs. The problem seems to be happening overnight as between my wife going to bed last night and me getting in from work at 0130 this morning the box was in the boot loop. Is there anything your tests reveal that would confirm or disprove this to be the case. Is swapping the box the easiest thing for the engineer or is a more complex fix a possibility. As I say I really dont want to lose the recordings and some things on their are not likely to be repeated any time soon.
