Another suggestion for speeding up your TiVo

Thanks to a couple of guys for the following comments after my previous post:

Suggestion here to remove the smart card if you still have one in the back and reboot. Does seem to have helped me.

And Jay added:
Taking the card out of the back improves performance massively night and day. Way more than formatting the box. Life saver! :)
It’s a little disappointing that our mate at Virgin Media engineering, Spiderplant, is less convinced:
Removing the card makes no difference. If it went faster, that would be because of the reboot.
I don’t have a card in my new TiVo so I can’t check this out for myself but if anyone else does it, can they please let me know how they get on?

I took my card out and it worked for one day, now it's back to useless again

The previous tip really helped to improve the speed on mine, so thanks to whoever brought that up.

Virgin staff act like this issue does not exist. They should offer a free V6 box to all users. Tweet the CEO your displeasure and request free V6 upgrade with no additional monthly or upfront costs. @TomMockridgeVM @virginmedia #FreeTiVoV6upgrade
