Spyware: This is normal TiVo behaviour and you get used to it. Takes around 6 minutes to boot. I got an HDHomerun to watch via PC while TiVo booting, great solution.
munchkin: I'm pretty sure that that *is not* normal behaviour. Have you called the TiVo helpdesk to log an issue and request assistance?
KiwiNZ: That is most certainly not normal and is unacceptable performance. It sounds almost like your unit has resource issues have you cleared stored recordings recently?
Do you have auto record turned on ? try turning that off for a bit and see if that helps , I found it fills your HDD with a lot of rubbish very quickly.
Also it might help to do a rescan for channels to ensure they are all set correctly.
catdog: How is that normal behaviour??... .
Perform a Hard Reset
This is performed by removing the power cable from the TiVo and leaving it disconnected for a minimum of five to six hours. This will cause the TiVo to reset the buffer when it returns to a powered-on state. .
TivoTimmy: hi, one more thing to try is to check your channel list. how many copies of TV3 do you have. does doing a channel scan give you a different one. if so, what happens if you "select" the other one.
May be nothing in this but I had two versions of some channels, some worked better than others.
TV1&2 seem to use different frequencies to 3&4, maybe some sort of issue with the transition between them
what area are you in? is there more than one transmitter.
Similar to Tivo's advice in your post I know but may be worth more digging.
