Tivo box not recording suggestions

My tivo box stopped recording suggestions over a week ago. I have done all the usual trouble shooting checks but no luck yet. Advice please.

Re: Tivo box not recording suggestions

There seems to be an issue with TiVo suggestions not recording for a few Virgin customers, including me! My suggestions stopped mid July shortly after I upgraded to a V6 box. I'd recommend reporting it to Virgin technical support.

Re: Tivo box not recording suggestions

Have a look at this thread in the V6 forums http://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Virgin-TV-V6/V6-suggestions/td-p/3296522 - since the Tivo and V6 box have the same software this could be a common problem.

The penultimate post gives a fault reference which you can quote if contacting VM.

Hope that helps,

Arthur

Re: Tivo box not recording suggestions

Still no change to this problem. I called it through to the Virgin tech support a few days back who did checks at their end and reset the box. This was all most helpful but I still cannot record suggestions. Any thoughts?

Re: Tivo box not recording suggestions

The same thing happened in 2013, see the thread...

"Where have my suggestions gone"

http://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Virgin-Media-TiVo-service/Where-have-my-suggestions-gone/m-p/206...

The problem is at Virgin Media's end.

I don't want to have to wait almost 2 years for it to work again.

Re: Tivo box not recording suggestions

It's 14 days since my call to virgin to fix this problem. The remote technical fix has made no difference and I still cannot get any suggestions on my Tivo box 😩

Re: Tivo box not recording suggestions

Well I called Virgin again on Thursday and Technical Support said everything would be OK and suggestions would now start to work. Still nothing. I am starting to feel that I am simply being fobbed off and that it is probably time to look at other media companies
