Is there any alternative to the TiVo box? The box I have is about 10 months old (it's been crap since day one though) and its painful to use. It's so slow and clunky and can take up to 5 minutes to actually do anything after pressing a button, especially when trying to do something as complex as open the guide...if there's no alternative I'll just be cancelling as soon as I can.
Short answer. No, not really. All the other boxes are being phased out over the next few years, as they cannot provide all the services people are expecting. A new updated 4k TiVO is heavily rumoured to be in the pipeline.
Have you had signal levels etc checked, as this can cause slow responses on any VM boxes?

Hi Collette, thanks for running the tests I thought I noticed my internet drop for a minute last night. Guessing that was it Pretty much everything about it is slow, from opening menus to scrolling through the guide. Catch up/on demand is almost unusable. It takes about 5 minutes to open something like the channel 4 catch up and then when we do manage to get a programme playing it loads very slow and at a low resolution even though it's plugged directly into the super hub with an Ethernet cable. Trying to get off the catch up and back to normal TV takes about 10 minutes, it just seems to freeze up as soon as you try closing it all
