Tivo menus very slow

Hi

I have just moved to VM from Sky one month ago. Whilst the Tivo was fine to begin with, it is now taking 20 to 30 seconds from pressing for example HOME or MY SHOWS to the menu actually appearing on the screen. I have seen some other posts about this but they were from years ago and I would have thought this sort of issue didnt occur anymore. Is this a common issue with other Tivo users? Just wondered if there was a "quick fix" rather than contacting Customer Services. 

Thanks

Simon

Hi vinny_cotterill,

 

Welcome to the Community!

Sorry to hear your TiVo® is running a bit slow.

There's a trick you can try to remove unnecessary background data on the TiVo® to help speed it up.

Just go to the Home screen and on your 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 that's done, you should notcie the TiVo® respond a lot quicker!

Hope that helps  Smiley Very Happy

Virgin pushed a firmware update out to TiVo boxes that's causing slow performance and recording errors.

I would imagine they'll get a fix out as soon as they can. It's not just making it slow, it's stopping recordings as well.

Re: Tivo menus very slow

Hello,
Tried this and after a few seconds of blank screen and thinking I had broken it, it appears to work a lot quicker. :-)

Re: Tivo menus very slow

I thought I'd broken it too. Was almost at the point I felt I'd been duped into breaking it lol.

Thanks for the help, much appreciated

...what does this 'trick' actually do though??  How can 4 button presses, make any difference to the speed of the menus?!?!!
