We had a power cut last night but only for about 20 minutes. Since then all three of our tivo boxes are not working. Two start up but show a C130 fault and the other doesn't get past the start up screen.
I rang Virgin and they are showing offline. They can't get an engineer out until Tuesday.
Does anyone know if there is anything I can do please?
Sounds like you've done all you sensibly can. Periodically try a power reset possibly, in the hope that eventually it may get itself out of a loop... also there's a section of the "My account" section of the VM site where you can amend your engineer appointment if a cancellation has arisen. Certainly worth a check every few hours.
Had same thing at beginning of week with a power cut and it has done exactly the same thing as you with the box just stuck on the start up screen in a constant loop and have been trying all week with no sucess to get the service back by trying to resart it.
So looks like you will have to wait until the technician comes to sort it out.
