Over the last few months the TiVo box has caused the TV screen to freeze when watching a recorded program on at least 4 or 5 occasions. The TiVo is about 6 years old approximately and it has also been slow when trying to watch catchup TV.
Each time it freezes I have unplugged it from the mains, waited one minute then plugged it back in again. It takes at least 10 minutes to restart each time, always when something else is being recorded so we lose part of that recording!
Also, occasionally, we have had some pixelation across an area of the TV screen which I have always put down to a poor signal, but perhaps it could be the TiVo box?
Is it time for an upgraded box or do I need to look to, say, Sky who seem to have some good deals on at the moment?
Seems cables weren't the problem. I put a call in to Virgin Media which resulted in them sending out a new V6 box. Despite them quoting a 2 day delivery, it arrived the following morning. A good service.
Spent some time today setting it up and now everything up and running. Fingers crossed the problem doesn't re-occur.
