TiVo V6 Box Front Display Panel

I had a V6 Box installed a few weeks ago and have just realized that the display panel on the front of the box (next to power on indicator) does not illuminate. All the ads show this with a glowing red virgin logo. My old Tivo box used to show red lights for each programme that was currently recording, this box shows absolutely nothing other than the power on/off light.

Is this normal??

Yes it's normal. You should only see the Power light unless something is wrong.

I think the advert itself was using TV magic to enhance the printed Virgin Media logo on the front for branding identification.

Absolutely normal - big white LED in operation and big red LED when in standby.

Re: TiVo V6 Box Front Display Panel

I have these symbols too.

Did you find out or solve their meaning. Thanks

Re: TiVo V6 Box Front Display Panel

I can easily see the red virgin logo from the other side of the room and had thought it was illuminated until I was corrected on the forum.

I also see a dull yellow light flashing when there is a problem with the network. In my case it usually shows when I am switching between a wired and wireless connection. It illuminates temporarily until the new connection is established but I have seen it remain flashing when there was a network problem.

Nice to be able to post again, after their mistake (removed by the Censorship team)
