TiVo box crashes when going to my shows

So I've got a TiVo box which is old now, and whenever I try to load "My Shows" the TiVo box crashes (goes to a black screen) and restarts. 

Ironically after restarting I can get to my shows and watch a show, but then when I want to watch another the whole fiasco happens again, meaning that the reality of watching a recording takes about 10-15 mins per time.


Does anyone have any suggestions? I think if I ring VM they'll want me to purchase a new box at the cost of £150 ISH, so that's kind of my last resort

Hi Not necessarily if you have a faulty box it should be replaced free of charge, and if by chance it's replaced with a V6 so much the better.Regards Micky
