online led flashing on tivo and unable to run online services

Occasionally the online led flashes on my TiVo unit and I am unable to run any of the online services (BBC i player etc..). Also when running BBC iplayer or itv player it is usually very slow to start . Does anyone have a solution to this?

its offline which means its not running so you cant watch anything if its flashing you have to wait till it stops then try again or you have issues or faulty box which needs looking at

So if the flashing becomes more often there is probably a fault with the box

Not necessarily.  The flashing online light usually indicates an issue at VM's end or an issue with the signal levels to your TiVo box.  If it happens frequently the best thing to do is report a TV fault and they will check the signal levels remotely and if necessary book an engineer visit for you.  One thing to check for yourself is that the VM cable is tightly connected to your box.
