TiVo box starting up

My TiVo box is stuck on ‘starting up’ page. Box displays steady blue light & flashing red light. 
Power has been turned off & on several times with no change. 
Any ideas?

Re: TiVo box starting up

Hi NK7,

Unplug it from the mains and leave it disconnected for 10 minutes then try again.

Have you tried signing into Service status at the top of this page? It shows any local faults and you can also run a test against the box. By doing this VM should be able to try and connect to your box and determine what  the problem is. Sometimes this results in them sending out a replacement and/or engineer.

If that doesn't work then you need to contact the Faults team on 150 from a Virgin landline, or 0345 454 1111, options 1,1 and 2 (Faultsbut best to call at 8am to avoid call queues 

When calling Faults hopefully the system will recognise that you've used the online faults checker and place you into a queue for an agent to pick up.

If not and you get the automated response asking you to press 1 for the link to online support, reboot box etc, ignore the options and don't press any buttons then you should be placed into a queue and an agent should pick up the phone and resolve the problem.

You could also try the text messaging service. Just send  a text with a description of TV Faults to 07533 051809. Your message will go into a queue and a representative will respond to you as soon as possible. It may take a few days.
