Re: Faultless V6 install

I hope I am as lucky.. waiting on the engineer now. They should have been here 1 - 6 he just rang to say he is held up, will still be at current job for an hour or more, then he has at least a 30 min drive Smiley Sad

Re: Faultless V6 install

Mine was likewise. 2 boxes fitted and connected and all series links etc transferred over. My install was Wednesday and very happy, hopefully for a long time.

Re: Faultless V6 install

Very happy with my install.

I love the speed of the box over the Tivo.

I have just arranged for the second Tivo to be replaced on the 13th.

Re: Faultless V6 install

The poor engineer has not long left my place he didn't get here til just before 8pm (now 9 pm) so a long day for him.

Joy of Joys though *touch wood* everything seems to be fine. Installed 2 V6s and moved one of the 1TB tivos to spare room (wanted to keep that one for all the recordings on it).

Everything seems great Smiley Happy ultra fast.. I can see the other boxes. Main is ethernet to Hub, 2nd V6 is ethernet to wifi extender and the tivo is ethernet to a powerline. The engineer seemed amused that I wanted everything connected by ethernet rather than wifi lol.

If a Virgin person would like to send on my appreciation for the engineer being so helpful, I would appreciate it Smiley Happy

Re: Faultless V6 install

I suspect that this varies area to area.

The engineers responsible for my V6 install, one a trainee I suspect, were extremely helpful and efficient.

I had a major issue last year, well-documented on these forums, and had a host of engineers round over a period of several months. Every single one was helpful and professional.

Nice to be able to post again, after their mistake (removed by the Censorship team).
¡No Pasarán!

Re: Faultless V6 install

I was talking to the engineer and he said it hasn't stopped since they released V6.. he didn't have a single day off in January and most days were like yesterday for him - not finishing the last job until about 9 pm. Poor guy. He did everything by the book though, didn't try to leave before everything was set up and working.
