TiVo media device » General Information

The lights on the front panel of your TiVoŽ media device provide important information about the status of your DVR.


Green: Power. This light will stay on when your TiVoŽ media device is on. If this LED is flashing then it means that your TiVoŽ media device has downloaded a software update and needs to be restarted.

Amber: Remote. This light will flash when your TiVoŽ media device is receiving a signal from your TiVoŽ Remote Control.

Red: Recording. Your TiVoŽ media device has two red LED lights which indicate that a recording is in progress on one, or both, of the TiVoŽ media device’s tuners.

Blue: Downloading. When your TiVoŽ media device’s blue LED light is on, this means the TiVoŽ is downloading content from CASPA™ On-Demand or a computer using the Home Networking Package.
