There seems to be a hardware problem with this unit.

My 8 year old Tive Premiere often buffers during Amazon Prime and Netflix shows.Is that a Tivo repair issue or network issue

Recently, after I was not able to repair my Tivo Premier with a new hard drive, I purchased a new Tivo Romeo. With the new Romeo I had no audio out from my TV. After I gave The technicians at Weaknees a hard time I found an HDMI setting in my receiver for AMP only output. By switching to AMP & TV the problem was solved. Many thanks to the folks at Weaknees for their patients and please accept my apology.

I had your business install a new hard drive in my TIVO Roamio back in March of 2024. The unit is working fine, but . . . when I shut off my TV and shut down the TIVO (standby) the green light goes dark the unit is off. Then I might come back in an hour or two or maybe even less and the green light is ON ?!? And there’s not a program being recorded, which I know it can do if I program it to, so WHY is the unit turning itself back on ???
