Hi I know it's not a good thing to suggest spending others hard earned money, but I access them via a Bluray player or a smart TV both of which are internet capable, then it's faultless quality and doesn't drop out, I know it's part of virgins packages and should work but it seems unreliable on virgins systems.Regards Micky

Re: You Tube problems on TIVO

Hi Tamanderson69, 

 

Thanks for your post and welcome to the forums. It's great having you on board with us in the Community. 

 

I'm sorry to hear you are having an issue using the YouTube app on your TiVo®. 

 

Checking the account it looks as though there was an fault that has since been resolved. Are you still having the same issues? 

 

Do you get the same issue on other apps? 

 

Come back and let me know.

 

Thanks,

Kath_F

Hi, Kath. Yes I'm still having trouble with it freezing. It's so bad now it's barely worth using the app. Thanks for responding.😊

Re: You Tube problems on TIVO

There is no fix for the YouTube issues on the TiVo box. All customers experience issues with it to some degree, some worse than others. The boxes aren't powerful enough to run it properly and a recent software update made it worse, though you won't see Virgin staff admit this.

The solution is to use the app on another device or upgrade to the V6 box which, in many cases, is only a £20 upfront fee with no monthly increase + the box is faster across the board.
