Tivo box broken?

Tuning in

Hey all , I spend like 30hours on the phone with Virgin trying to fix my tivo box a years ago.

Tivo box doesnt receive signal from remote, remote works on tv but on not on the box. 

After all this phonecalls they have send me like 5 remotes and all are the same. I explained them that seems like the box is in fault but they didnt want to send someone to check or replace it.

Have been more than a year since this happend and I pretty much gave up on it as clearly they didnt want to help , just to the take their money every month without working product.

Now im on the point that I dont find the reason to be with Virgin and pay them for a product i cant use.

Anyone have any idea what it may be wrong? Anyone had a similar problem?Should i start again and spend month with them on the phone? Is their any point doing it again or will I get a box of remotes again?

Im with them since 2015 with the same equipment as a heads up.
