Hello, Virgin engineer came around more than 2 hours ago to install new wireless router and TIVO box. Switched it all on, said the TIVO box would start up in about 30 minutes.
In common with other posters on here, we're sitting here watching the thing go through continuous cycles of saying it's going to start up, lights flashing on and off but nothing else happening.
Called 150 who told us it can take 2 hours and gave out some nonsense about needing that long because it "needs to find the IP address".
Why is nothing ever straightforward with Virgin? Why does the fact of us paying Virgin more money and being "upgraded" like this mean we now have no TV for the rest of the weekend at the very least? Does anyone from Virgin even care about your shabby customer service? Why didn't the engineer stay to make sure the box was working?
We switched box on this morning and it started to boot up but we couldn't get past installation menu. Engineer came and sorted things out and left. Then a supervisor came and inspected work and replaced some wiring as well as advising other half on how it should work.
We came home from work this evening and now its stuck again cycling through Starting Up message and then doing nothing. Another engineer booked for Friday. This is really rubbish service, I have to say.
