TiVo box stuck on ‘installing Software’ page - says restart but comes back to the same page, says check cables but no issue there. It just won’t connect and install, was told last week local issue and new router sent out for slow speeds, but not resolved anything. A week without TV !
Sorry to see you are having prolonged issues with your Tivo.
Try signing into Check service status at the top of the page. You can also a run a test on your equipment from there. It's going to fail the test, the auomated system may send a signal to your box, which again will probably fail. However having done that you may have more luck getting through to the Faults Team as the system should recognise and then hopefully the call will be picked up by an agent.
You can contact the faults Team by calling 150 from a Virgin landline, or 0345 454 1111, options 1,1 and 2 (Faults) butbest to call at 8am to avoid call queues
You could also try the text messaging service. Just send a text with a description of TV Faults to 07533 051809. Your message will go into a queue and a representative will respond to you as soon as possible.It may take a few days.

There can be issues with the system and the one we had did this and i found you take everything out and re set it up and try again it might do it can be a bit slow to do the last bits depends on the server it logs on to.
Just checking - is this "new VM equipment" - if so it needs to be activated to work - that may not have auto-happened.
The equipment activation number is... 0800 953 9500 - call at 08.00 for best chance of getting through.
