Got my new V6 today. I went to video set up and had the box do a test to find all supported resolutions. I saved settings and came out. This left me at a blank screen. I could see EPG info bar when I changed channels and could hear sound but screen blank. I attempted to get back to settings screen but no luck. The box then rebooted. It has been stuck at the 'Starting up..' screen for the last 30 minutes. Not sure what to do - shall I unplug it or just wait?

The issue was that I was connecting the V6 HDMI output to my Yamaha amp. As soon as I changed the video settings the screen went blank and re booted. I now have the HDMI connected directly to TV and it works fine.
Mines being doing this a lot lately. Either a blank screen when coming out of standby or hanging and I have to unplug it and it can take 10 minutes to start up and it has stopped recording some programmes. Might be an engineer visit looming.
We have a strange problem - Have 2 V6 Boxes - Number 1 works with a Samsung UHD TV and we have absolutely no problem with this at all. Box 2 works with a Fergusson TV and it never starts up first time. I have to put the box into standby, then press the TV button (Twice) each time about 15 seconds apart. If I'm lucky I can turn the TV on and get picture and sound. If not I either get Blue screen, Black screen or Black screen with channel detail and sound.
Initially it took 15 to 20 attempts to start up - I can now do it in 1 to 5 attempts. - And I thought the Samsung TV's were a problem..
