27th june -shortly after midnight, the TIVO unit shut down...  - NO CHANNELS of any description were found...


Anyway, due to 1ZB conversation, it was found to be a Freeview maintenance problem. So at 5 a.m. i'll expect everything to come back to normal.


anyway, i didnt check this morning & went to work. Ive arrived home & Nothing has recorded all day.




problem 1) No channels were found.  so i re-scanned all my channels  - they all appeared, so thats 1 problem solved. 


I connected to the TIVO service just in case - to update my to-do list..






Problem 2) i went to my TO DO list & saw (or didnt see) what i expected.


my #1 season pass - MYTHBUSTERS, auto-record ALL including duplicates. 


I can see the mythbusters show in my timetable & it does acknowledge they are there to record, but NONE are being recorded....




So i'll go through & try to reset the season passes... but shouldnt it auto-record anyway ? a FREEVIEW (not TIVO) maintenance shouldnt affect how Tivo operates ?




PROBLEM 3)  its now 6:20 PM on Tuesday. & my TIVO was watching Tv for 5 minutes & now i have a message.






QUESTION: Is anyone else who was affected by this mornings maintenance still seeing problems ? Or have your systems come back online ? 




i am in Auckland North shore area.

I've only just read this however my TiVo seemed to successfully record a couple of things last night (Tuesday 27th).  Don't know if there was any outage in the Hawke's Bay region.
