Hi mssharon 

Try the following, it's worked for some forum members.

Turn off the tivo at switch;  then on the tivo box  hold down both the power button and the + button at the same time.

Then turn on the tivo again whilst keeping hold of those buttons for a further 30 seconds.

The box should reboot, the power button will turn blue, and it should  reset and boot up normally

If that fails then you should call  150 from a Virgin landline or mobile, or 0345 454 1111, option 2 (Faults

When calling Faults ignore all the options and don't press any buttons then you should be placed into a queue and an agent should pick up the phone and book the tech for you.

Or wait a day or two and a member of the Forum Team should pick this up for you and arrange a tech visit.

The instructions above will work for V6 boxes which run TiVo-software. They won't work for actual TiVo boxes, which don't have the buttons mentioned... 

A TiVo that's stuck in the boot loop should be reported faulty via the usual routes, and will be replaced with a V6 - assuming you have VM home broadband.
