Hi , our Virgin TiVo box keeps resuming from standby every now and again and stays that way. to be honest this is a long running issue now but I thought I would post and ask about it to see if there are any solutions. Not sure how often the box comes out of standby as we aren’t in that room very often but nothing is set to record and the box, as far as I can tell, records anything automatically.
Even when it is on standby mode every now and again you can hear the hard disk spin up. Why would that be?
To clarify this is the first TiVo box not the V6 or the 360
It's possible the TiVo is restarting overnight, and after booting up, it's taking the 2 or 4 hours (depending on your power-saving settings) of power-up before going back to standby.
There's a way of testing this theory, but it's a little cryptic on a TiVo...
Follow Home > Help & Settings > Settings, and make sure the menu option that's highlighted is something other than the top one. After the box "resumes from standby", go back into this menu and see where the highlight is. It resets to the top-line after a restart.
