    Does anyone have any suggestions regarding this problem:


    - Tivo switched on, green light showing.

    - When Tivo selected on TV remote a frozen image from a programme not currently on live TV AND not from previously watched Tivo recording shows.

    - Pressing ANY button on Tivo remote has not effect. red light on remote flashes and have also tried changing batteries.

    - Turning Tivo power off at socket has no effect - green light stays ON on Tivo.

    - Turning Tivo power back on at socket and selecting from TV remote reverts to same frozen image.

    Thanks, 21rr

    Sorted - Called UK helpline (0844 2140703). Advised to pull power lead out of Tivo, green light then went out, put lead back in and Tivo rebooted.

    But pulling the power lead out is the same as switching it off at the socket :confused:

    Oh well. At least it fixed it :)

    If the green light stayed on then, either he switched the wrong socket off, or he didn't leave the power off long enough for the capacitors in the power supply to discharge.

    When performing a cold restart on a device by disconnecting the power, one should disconnect it for at least 10 seconds and, with some types of PSU, up to 30 seconds.
