Tivo slower than a computer from the 80s

Hi all,

 

Has anybody managed to get the speed of their Tivo box, anywhere near as fast as Sky yet?

Because when they did the big update, with the new awfull colours, my Tivo experience is getting slower by the Month.

Friends and Family have the new Sky box, and it is Balisticly FAST.

 

I switched from sky for a better broadband speed, which is good.

But my TV and now Netflix experience is like something from the 80s, VERY VERY SLOW. Smiley Sad

 

Come on virgin, mr Bolt might be fast, but your TV box is not.

Yes! Every time the network "goes down" my Tivo speeds up, massively. Of course, functionality is limited but it is a very much different experience without the spinning circles and long menu delays. Perhaps it gives up trying to upload all your viewing activity data to big brother Smiley Wink

 

 

VM please do not phone me again to discuss my posts. I have not welcomed or invited such an intrusion.

Re: Tivo slower than a computer from the 80s

Hi leeharv, 

 

Thanks for your post and apologies for the issues you are having with the slowness of the TiVo® menus. 

 

This sin't what I like to hear so i've taken a look at the account to see what's wrong. 

 

There seems to be a few errors on your box which will need an engineer visit to address. 

 

I've sent you a private message on this. 

 

Thanks,

Are you responsible for the engineer booked for tomorrow? If so, can I suggest you cancel it as I have not requested, accepted or given permission for one and it is not convenient. I am aware of the uncorrected errors in the log but I have had enough engineers out by now to know it does not make any difference. Tivo is just slow. They only just fixed the broadband again recently.

Re: Tivo slower than a computer from the 80s

Hi thanks4nothing,

 

Thanks for posting.

 

I've looked in to this for you and can see you've already cancelled this via the text system. I deeply apologise this was booked for you.

 

Take care.
