TV problems

Had two V6 Tivo boxes installed on Thursday and have two problems:

(a) every so often the screen flickers / flashes.  This stops if the Tivo box is turned off for a few seconds, but it has happened three times now and so is annoying.

(b)  our upstairs tivo box struggles to link to the downstairs one (although the other way around doesn't seem to be a problem).  Even when it does link, it won't play recordings from it - the code V401 comes up.

We've been told we have a temporary set-up until a cable re-pull is conducted outside our property later this week - I'm not convinced this will solve either problem though.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Re: TV problems

How are you V6s connected to the superhub?

Re: TV problems

Hi

Assuming the super hub is the router then downstairs (which flashes / flickers) via Ethernet and upstairs via wifi.

Thanks

You say above that :-

"(b)  our upstairs tivo box struggles to link to the downstairs one (although the other way around do"

but the Tivo box does not support WiFi. It needs an ethernet connection, either direct or via powerlines.

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

As per the OP's first post, he has V6 boxes, not TiVO's. Typical confusion when posters use both in the same sentence. To clarify for all concerned, the V6 is not a TiVO, it just runs on TiVO firmware. That is where the similarity ends.

Re: TV problems

Mea culpa - and noted for future reference.

Any help still greatly appreciated - i.e. is there any chance a re-pull is going to make any difference?  Or is it an internal set-up / wifi signal issue?

(Not important, but am also wondering if there is a particular meaning of 'saccharine' on this board that I'm unaware of).

Thanks all
