For the past few months, I have been experiencing some really bad picture break up when watching on my TiVo box. It looks like the signal is being interrupted, multi colour blocks appear on the screen, the picture stutters and the sound drops. I see the issue mainly on BT Sport 1, 2 and 3 HD, also on Sky Sports News. These channels make up 95% of my viewing time, but I have seen the issue on other HD channels.
At first I thought that this may be caused by the weather, but after monitoring, it appears the problem appears on sunny days, as well as rainy cloudy days.
As you can imagine this is really annoying, especially as live sport is my main usage.
I have tried running the online status check, but everything comes back as "no problems have been found". The Tivo has been rebooted multiple times and I have reseated all cabling many times.
Unsure if related but I have to reboot my Hub2 several times a week as wifi drops and only comes back following a reboot (2G and 5G). Hard wired connections are fine.
Has anyone else encountered this? Any advice would be gratefully received. I have been unable to get through to anyone on the phone.
Just to feedback on my conversation with the Support Team, incase it helps someone else.
I called the support team on Thursday morning at 08:00, and spoke to a chap based out of India. He listened to my issues and the troubleshooting I had already done. He asked me to double check a couple of serial numbers on my Tivo box, then he ran a test from his end. After a couple of minutes he said he could see an issue with the actual Tivo box. He arranged for a new V6 box to be sent out within 5-7 days. The box was delivered on Saturday morning for se,f installation.
Since setting it up, I have not encountered any pixelation issues.
