Yesterday I had my old Tivo boxes updated to 360 boxes but currently my main box is still on the Tivo software. The 360 mini box works but I can't update the main box to the 360 software. The option just isn't there and I can't access the apps & games section due to reduced functionality.
When I press the home button on the main box I am greeted with a message saying something along the lines of you have had an issue with your account and have reduced functionality. I phoned support this morning and they adjusted bits their end and said to reboot the box and it'll start working properly. It's been rebooted and is still not updating and now I can't pause live TV or use catch up services. I was told someone would call me back to make sure it was working but that never happened.
Also, I have the new remote and the old one was taken away so can't use thumbs up etc etc.
Is there anyway to force the box to update to the 360 software?
Thanks for the reply. I deffo have a v6 box downstairs and a 360 mini box upstairs. I did have the old chunky TIVO boxes in both rooms but they were taken away by the engineer.
The mini box works absolutely fine on the new software but the downstairs v6 box won't update to the 360 software so I can't record or stream to the mini box.
The engineer couldn't activate the boxes whilst he was here as the activation service was down and said they'll both activate and update when this service is back up. The mini box did but the main v6 box hasn't. It still has TIVO software on.
The main box has been rebooted so many times but isn't updating. I can't pause live TV, record or use catch up services on it either but I can the mini box on the 360 software.
The mini-box doesn't have a hard drive and completely relies on your master box for all recording facilities.
So the underlying issue is that the master box hasn't converted to 360, reducing the mini to just having live TV, OnDemand & a short 4ish minute buffer. - I think your best action here is to call VM Faults to report it - 11150 (from a VM phone) or 0345 4541111 (from any other phone)
VM staff might take a couple of days to respond on here.

Thank you for your posts and welcome to our community forums. We're here to help.
I am so sorry to hear that you seem to be having some trouble with your new TV boxes. I can see that on your last post in this thread a few days ago you mentioned calling the technical support team as suggested by the other community members. Did you go ahead with this? If so, has this now been resolved or do you need further assistance?
The slave box is on the 360 software so that's not an issue. The main box is still on the TiVO software after a reboot.
With regards to the app, I don't have access to the apps as it says there is an issue with the account and if you are experiencing reduced functionality, call us on UNKNOWN - therfore I am no nearer to getting it updated and the record, pause, on-demand functionality back. Frustrating isn't the word.
