Tivo box freezing

Hi there.

I have an intermittent problem with my tivo box. The picture either freezes or the screen goes completely blank. This can happen when either watching live tv or a recording. Also, sometimes it won't change channel, bring up the home screen or go to standby.

It will reboot if switched off but can happen 2 or 3 times in an evening until we get fed up and abandon it.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Re: Tivo box freezing

If your TiVo is freezing repeatedly, and you're having to reboot it to regain control, I'd say the box has a fault.

The best thing in this case would be to call VM and report your fault. 150 (from a VM phone) or 0345 4541111 (from any other phone) and choose the "I have a fault with my TV service" options.

As an aside, if you've had your package a while, and have VM broadband, it may be worth considering a swap to a V6 box that would be a vast improvement on yours, but use the same software. A like-for-like fault replacement shouldn't be an issue, even if you don't do this.

Hi Sasha.

I haven't actually spoken to anyone so wasn't aware that they were sending out a new box. Fab news.

Thanks for getting in touch, much appreciated.
