Re: Tivo box stuck on update

Exactly the same here. Box suddenly did an update last week as has been stuck on rebooting since then. We have been away for a week, box off, and still the same now. Cannot get in touch via phone and two SMS messages had gone unanswered. I'm pretty sure the problem is terminal and need a replacement.

Re: Tivo box stuck on update

@johnsw16 

Rather than adding to an existing thread, it's easier to start a new one with your details.. I've done this for you 🙂

Aside from checking whether you have a TiVo or a V6, the V6 needs a separate internet connection and this is via your homehub... you're best off persisting with the queues I'm afraid.

The text message service you mention tends to take a couple of days to respond, and VM staff on here are around a week behind at the moment.

Grab a biscuit and coffee, put your phone on speaker/handsfree mode and "enjoy" Virgin-FM 🙂

Re: Tivo box stuck on update

That's all very well but I never get through to even ringing to a real person. It goes around various options but never "connection to a member of our team" or it just cuts me off! I have the older Tivo (3-recordings) and a separate internet router.

 

PS - the first SMS was sent on the 22nd of October.

Hi johnsw16,

 

Thanks for posting and very sorry for the late reply.

 

I can see you've been able to contact us regarding the issues with your TiVo 🙂 If you do still need help with anything please let us know.
