I have been getting "To Be Announced" on several channels on TV guide for several weeks. This is old TiVo V5 box. Turned off box and restarted. Checked system menu and don't see anything that stands out as an error with recent connection successful messages.
Other issue is that recordings are often breaking up / stop for several seconds. Ran Online test to check status with nothing found. Finally tried to phone virgin support but as expected, too busy as usual. What now?
Let's cover some basics then. I'm assuming live TV is ok, and therefore your incoming "signal" is considered ok. Also I'm assuming you have a TiVo box rather than V6, therefore the internet connection is inbuilt.
Your box attempts to call home to update the EPG (TV guide) roughly every 6 hours, and if too many of these fail then naturally "To be announced" is the result. It therefore follows that your are essentially reporting that the calls home are failing.
So let's see why they're failing - I can't make out from your previous posts, if you're saying there's no errors showing on the connection screen. That would suggest that some are failing but others are succeeding. Or are they all failing - what does the box report as the last successful connection?
There's a chance you may have disk issues, given a comment about corrupted recordings - but let's be methodical about this.
From View Network Diagnostics the Port Configuration Test appears to be permanently at a status of testing.
So your TiVo's modem has dropped off the network, and therefore all the online updates are failing. I suspect the "Heartbeat" green light on your TiVo is flashing.
It may be a "virtual" issue that just needs VM to reconnect it from their end, or it may be a physical problem with your box.
In either case, the resolution is the same. Call Virgin, explain your symptoms and what's been done. You're looking to end the call either with your box connecting to the network and receiving all its lost updates (may take 20-30 minutes once the modem issue is solved), or having an engineer visit booked. In the nicest way, don't settle for anything else.
Two hours and three calls to virgin support. Faulty hard drive seen as cause. Engineer arranged for Monday. Advised that V6 box has wi-fi built in to allow it to connect to router which is in another room. Fingers crossed it.
