Tivo box so slow it is now useless

For the last few months my Tivo box has been so unresponsive I'm beginning to think I should cancel and move to Sky. Re booting has no effect. I understand even changing the box will have no effect. When will a new box be available that can cope. All my friends are having exactly the same problem so it is not just my service. Perhaps it is time to change providers,

Re: Tivo box so slow it is now useless

Hi johnchallenor,

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

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

 

There's a little trick you can try to clear unnecessary background data to help speed up the box.

 

Just go to the Home screen and on the remote control press Thumbs Down, Thumbs Up, Play, Play. You'll hear a 'ping' noise and the screen will go blank for a few seconds.

 

Once the screen comes back on, you should notice the TiVo® speed up.

 

I hope that helps!  Smiley Very Happy

 

Josh

It just restart the UI. Bit of "turn off and on again LITE VERSION". Pathetic really. Makes no difference at all. Why not company give proper help desk to take complaint and fix problem like normal companys, instead ignoring cusomters?
