I have started to use you tube on channel 198 for the last few weeks. I find it very slow to load after pressing the red button. Also slow to select the video I want to watch.
Is this because I use the older Tivo box which does not use the hubs broadband
Go to Answer
Yes, for two reasons:
1. TiVo uses a 10Mb broadband connection;
2. TiVo’s processing power has become very limited.

Thats what I thought but why doesnt your 151 service know this. I got all the usual reset and tighten your connections rubbish and even the second line support did not know this

Can you try this please.
Press Home on your remote Control
Press Thumbs Down, Thumbs Up, Play Play (in a fairly quick succession)
The screen will then go black for approx. 15 seconds )
It should speed up after that
Doesn’t that sequence just reset the GUI? Not sure it frees up any resources sufficient to improve TiVo’s performance. I guess a re-boot of TiVo would be equally useful.
It is always worth a try @Ernie_C. I have done it with mine at home and its worked a lot better. I think if @Misog is still having issues then I can look at a V6 Box to swap out
I had a text saying that the network problem affecting my service is fixed which it hasn't been
Also the thumbs down/up did not work.
I will ring back tomorrow and see how much a v6 upgrade costs
