Tivo box wont start

Had a tivo box that has worked fine for years but now refuses to start up. It goes through a loop of starting up, then goes blank, then starting up again endlessly.

I've tried switching it off at the wall for half an hour and still has the same issue. Beem like this for over 24 hours now, please help.

Re: Tivo box wont start

Oh dear. I wouldn't have had any hesitation about calling VM and getting this sorted. Sounds like the box has failed. It happens.

You'll get the off-shore centres tonight but it is worth a call. They can book you a tech to change the box. They might try a re-set signal. Make sure the box is on when you phone.

You can wait until a member of the Forum Team picks this up. Might take a day or so.

I do not work for VM. The advice I give is based on my best understanding of VM policy and practice. You rely on it at your own risk.

Re: Tivo box wont start

It's a national issue, not local. My Tivo has not been working since last Friday. The Forum Team here are as useless and disjointed as Customer Services.

Thanks for coming back to me Smiley Happy

 

I will be happy to arrange for an engineer appointment to call out for you.

 

I'll send you a private message with all the details.  (Look out for the envelope icon above)
