intermittent fault on tivo

Can not predict when this will happen so l guess no point in getting someone out. Frozen screen when changing from TV to radio. Loss of sound . Pictures flashing on and off. And one recording completely breaking up. Goes for days and is fine then will have one after another. How long before it dies completely? Waste of time calling as in the past l am told nothing is wrong.Will be glad when out of contract.

Re: intermittent fault on tivo

Either signal issues, or your box is at fault.

Replacement boxes are covered under your contract, so it might be worth trying the online service checker rather than ringing in. http://my.virginmedia.com/faults/service-status

Re: intermittent fault on tivo

Status is fine .last time engineer came he could find  any faults. Was true when he tried. Really looks like time to move on.

.Watch Netflix , Amazon on smart TV .Perhaps with high speed bb in my street (fast enough for my needs) That is the way to go. Dropping cable will be a wrench - with them since the days of cabletel!

Re: intermittent fault on tivo

Hi Itshim,

 

Thanks for raising this TiVo® issue in our Community.

 

How are the services now? Are you still experiencing the same faults from time to time?

 

I appreciate you said that the last time an engineer went, nothing wrong was found. But i wouldn't be happy if I know that this keeps on going every now and then. We'll be glad to look into your box and connection to make sure things are are working perfectly. We can do this via online chat.

 

Let me know how it goes.

 

Regards,

 

Valerie_T

Re: intermittent fault on tivo

Just looked again still the opps message REALLY !!!! Guess it has a fault but no ones will admit to it,
Looked up offers just now thought I might try a V6 . What a great deal on line.For what have now BUT with V6 box £6.50 per month EXTRA + £25 set up So box will cost -year one £103 extra then £78 per year if no price rise - and that is as likely as a squadron of Gloucester old spots flying over my house.

Re: intermittent fault on tivo

Hi itshim,

 

Thanks for posting on our Community.

 

I do apologise for the intermittent fault on your TiVo®. We'll try our best to get it sorted so you can enjoy your favorite shows.  Just need to confirm few things with you. 

 

Have you tried rebooting your hub and to check if all cable wires are connected properly?

You can also check chat with our online team we can do this via online chat. As they can troubleshoot your TV box. They can look in your account and run some diagnosis.

 

Looking forward to your response.

 

Thanks

 

Victoria_M
