My box was getting slower and slower so arranged an engineer visit. It examined it and said it was ready to be exchanged as it was over 2 years old and he could do it there and then. As I had a lot of recordings I did not want to miss he suggested I kept the box watched the recordings then phone in again. This I did to be told there was no reason to exchange the box. He then went through a few things to speed it up. It is faster than before but still very slow. Who do I believe?
I would believe the latter. You do not need a replacement box. Your issue is due to a performance problem with the current level of software. A solution to this problem is being worked on and hopefully it will be available sooner, rather than later.
Just wanted to confirm that what Ernie_C has said is absolutely correct. We are working on a fix for the TiVo® issue that we will be rolling out as soon as possible. A replacement TiVo® will unlikely resolve the issues you have.
All the best

So there is a known issue resulting in ' below standard performance' so why have I been subjected to s PRICE INCREASE. I would have though I should get a discount until a successful solution is found. How long have VM known about this issue? When do they hope/expect to have the problem solved? R
Thanks Craig I would imagine that in an organisation that provides a service to paying customers that if a problem exists which affects the service that there would be a manager somewhere who would meet with the 'solution seeking team' and request from them an expected timeline of their work with an estimated deadline for the problem to be fixed and for the expected level of service to be restored. Maybe I am being naive. If it is taking so long maybe more engineers should be put on the job or more time spent on seeking out a solution. Do you have engineers working 24 x 7 on the problem? Someone must have some idea of how far away you are from finding a solution. Days, weeks, months or years or do your engineers think it is unsolvable? My other concern was about VM recognising that there is a problem with the TiVo service but they increased how much I had to pay. I am interested in your thoughts about this increase.
It would be simple if this issue affected all boxes, but it does not. The majority of these boxes do work well, so a vast amount of work has to be carried out to identify what causes the problem. This then has to go through software development with teams here & in the US. Then it has to go out here on Beta test in different parts of the network to ensure it doesn't cause further issues before its cleared for release.
I can assure you it is being worked on.
