TiVo stuck on deleting everything screen

I was having some problems connecting to Netflix on my TiVo box so I tried a clear and delete everything to factory reset the box as I haven’t used it for a while. 

I got the deleting everything this May take an hour screen.

12 hours later it is still stuck on this screen. Any idea how I can get the box working again?

I’m not sure which box I’ve got. 

I’ll just ring virgin media.

Re: v6 box only stuck on deleting everything screen

I had my V6 box stuck on delete everything for hours and what ever I did I could not clear.

I found the answer of how to clear and reinstate the box unfortunately you will have lost all your recordings

First switch of the box via the toggle switch on the back then hold down the + key and the on/off button both of which are on the front of the box then while holding both down switch the box back on via the on/off toggle switch on the back of the box.

The box will then power up and will start to reinstate be patent as this will take some time it should then return as if new.
