Tivo boxes waking themselves up every day

My two Tivo boxes are waking themselves up every day at around 04:00-05:00. The one in my bedroom is waking me up.

I've seen many posts about "work in your area is causing them to receive updates" etc. but this happens every day without fail.

What's the resolution?

That seems to happen when they are doing an area upgrade, this can last for several weeks

I wouldn't do that. It can cause updates to the box to fail and then you're in all sorts of bother!

How would an update fail if it was turned off?

Re: Tivo boxes waking themselves up every day

Switching it off is fine if it's waking you up, it's not recommended long term as it designed to be on all the time but and it takes a while to boot but as a short term solution it's ok

Re: Tivo boxes waking themselves up every day

Hi surreydude, 

 

Thanks for your posts. 

 

Usually any updates that need to be run are done throughout the night as this is when the least amount of people are using the service. This includes any software updates and or EPG updates. 

 

We're sorry if this is causing your TiVo® to make a noise that wakes you up. 

 

Switching the box off means the updates aren't run. This could lead to scheduling errors on the box, your EPG being out of date and also takes longer for your box to come on if there's been a software update as it will run once turned on. 

 

What sort of noise is the TiVo® making to wake you up? 

 

Let us know.

 

Thanks,

Kath_F

Hi Kath

It's not the noise waking me up - my TV comes on when it receives a signal from the TiVo

Simple solution. Turn the TV off when you are not using it.
