TIVO STUCK ON PREPARING CHANNELS, 25%, THEN UNABLE TO PREPARE CHANNELS.

Message: Please wait...Preparing channel information, stuck on loading 25% followed by channels not loading.

According to service status checker, no known faults. Tried run test, but resulted in an error message. 

I can see my recordings listed using the home screen, but I can't get the tv guide or any channels.

Re: TIVO STUCK ON PREPARING CHANNELS, 25%, THEN UNABLE TO PREPARE CHANNELS.

First thing, do you have a TiVo or a V6? If not sure, check here 

If you have a TiVo, then on the front-left of the box there's a series of green lights. Second from left is the "heartbeat" LED which indicates your internet connection - is it solid or static?

If you have a V6, how is it connected to your homehub - Ethernet or WiFi?

Hi @mels, thanks for our post - apologies for the delay getting back to you.

 

Apologies for the TiVo issue as well - when looking into this today I can't get any reading from the box, but it's clear there are issues with the service as the hub is out of spec and will require the attention of an engineer.

 

I hope you don't mind that in the interest of getting things sorted asap I've gone ahead and booked an appointment - please find confirmation via your online account (virg.in/myVM) and you can reschedule from there if needed.

 

Keep us posted with how that goes, or let us know if we can help with anything else in the meantime.

 

Tom

The channels have come back on, but some of the channels flicker/freeze at times to the point we don't watch them. This is something which started before the 25% problem.
