    Hi

    I have just bought a Tivo and set it all up, but I am not sure if it is faulty or not. Sometimes it can take about 2 minutes just to load the TV guide or it can take a long time after I have made a recording selection. On other occaisions these screens load instantly. The unit also re-boots for no reason.

    Is this normal or do I have a faulty unit ?

    No, this is not normal I'm afraid.

    You might get a better response if you re-post this over at the Tivo Community forum:

    www.tivocommunity.com then go the UK forum.

    I think it may be faulty - my tv guide is instant and it never re-boots

    zap,
    I agree with the posts above, mine aren't as you describe.
