Tivo Box Very Slow To Navigate - Youtube Unwatchable Due to Buffering.

Any advice from anyone on either of these issues?

My tivo box is very slow to respond to menu commands and  I can watch youtube on any of my other devices, but on the box it's staggering with any video at all.

That's a general complaint about the version of TiVo VM offer. Newer versions of TiVo in the USA have super snappy menu response times (better hardware, more RAM.)

and  I can watch youtube on any of my other devices, but on the box it's staggering with any video at all.


YouTube app issues could be down to congestion on the legacy side of the network that TiVo uses. How is the BBC Iplayer does it stagger too? Also, there is the possibility that the new YouTube app is just too intensive on the hardware of the old version of TiVo VM uses.

Well, the following devices work fine with Youtube in my house;

 

Sky Now box

WD TV Live

Mac Mini

Ipad 4

Iphone 5

Sony Xperia Z1 Compact

Nook HD

 

and so on. Not all at the same time, obviously!

 

Iplayer isn't great to get to - the streaming is ok, to be honest I don't use the box at all for that as it's so slow to navigate.

 

So, are we saying youtube is just terrible on the Virgin boxes? Is it bad on yours?
