My replacement Tivo box does not give a signal to the TV. It has a constant green light on the left and a red light on the right. Every 20 seconds those go out and a load of other lights. Come on for a couple of seconds: a mix of red green and blue in this pattern:
They go off again and nothing else happens for another 20 seconds.
Ominously, the box itself rattled when I took it out of the package this afternoon. I don’t think it’s well. And it is actually worse than the box it was sent to replace.
I wasn’t sent a replacement remote control. The old one won’t affect the box in any way. I assume it should or I would have been sent a new one.
You've posted in the 360 forum but referred to a TiVo - can you confirm which box you have? Check here if you're not sure.
I'm fairly sure that, from your description of the LEDs that you have a TiVo. And if the replacement box is rattling, that doesn't sound good and probably indicates a physical fault. The remote control will be perfectly fine to use from your old box.
The quickest way to resolve this will likely be to call in on the usual number (150 from a VM phone, or 0345 4541111 from any other phone). Alternatively, once you've confirmed which box you have, you can wait for VM staff to respond on here (and given that "the system" has let you down here, I'll push this post up their to-do list) - although this may still take a little longer than calling.
