Tivo V6 will not wake up

This has happened a couple of times in recent weeks, and now three days in a row...

I leave the Tivo on when I go to bed. Overnight it goes into standby. When I wake it up in the usual manner the next day (press Guide or MyShows on the remote) the red standby light turns white, as it should ... and nothing happens. No sound, no picture, no response to any remote controls.

I unplug it from the mains and re-boot and all is well, but this is not satisfactory - yesterday I missed the beginning of a programme I was hoping to record, due to the lengthy re-boot time.

Anyone else getting this or had this? Is it a sign the Tivo is on its way out (with scores of hours of recorded material!) or is it perhaps a recent software update issue?

Re: Tivo V6 will not wake up

What happens if your power saving setting is Always On and you put the box into Standby before going to bed.

Re: Tivo V6 will not wake up

I'll give that a try one evening - when I remember! 😉

Though not sure why the method of going into standby should make any difference to how it comes out of standby. I'll report back when I have a result.

Though to be honest I've never been one to remember to put Tivo into standby at night. I may eventually just revert to an 'always on' setting if the problem persists.

Re: Tivo V6 will not wake up

It always works for me and whether or not it works for you may give a clue to what's going wrong.

I always to put the V6 into standby when I stop watching TV, been doing it for so long that it's a habit and I don't have to think too much about it.

Re: Tivo V6 will not wake up

Remember it depends how deep a sleep it is in for houw long it takes to wake up - I've had to wait over 10 seconds free pressing the HOME button from standby before anything appears to happen.

Re: Tivo V6 will not wake up

Gazmorgan81,

Turns out it seems to be more of an HDMI communication issue with the TV.  If the scren is blank when TV turned on, going to HDMI2 (the old Tivo box is still on that) and back to HDMI1 (the V6) is awake and ready to go. Happens intermittently, haven't been bothered to investigate further.

Thanks for responses. 

I've swapped HDMI cable but alas it's the same. Changed to always on now so see how that goes.
