Re: V6 box jumping

Very odd not seen that before, can you describe jumping, does it jump when it paused, does it do it on all programming, recordings and live ?

Does it do it on BBC iplayer and youtube ?

Have you tried playing with the video settings and trying different HDMI leads ?

Re: V6 box jumping

Its just very odd that you'd get 2 dud boxes... not impossible though.

are both tv's similar, and have you tried changing the video output settings ?

Re: V6 box jumping

Are they 4k tv's or anything special.

Could you also describe exactly what you mean by jumping, I'm imagining what you'd get in the old days of a badly tuned analog tv where the sync keep skipping.
It could be 2 dodgy boxes that happen to be in the same batch..

If what you mean however is that the picture sometimes gets pixilated, or you loose the occasional frame, then that would probably be a signal issue

There are a number of issues with some tv, these mostly manifest themselves when 1st booting up and are related to HDMI copy protection.

in the 1st 2 cases it would probably require a technicians visit, it will take around a week for a member of virgin staff to get to this message, or you can try ringing 150

In the last case, it may get fixed in a software update, or you can try different HDMI leads.

Re: V6 box jumping

Hi Donna1981,

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

Really sorry to hear you're having trouble with your V6 box.

 

I've run diagnostics on your equipment and I can see an issue with your signal levels that will need to be adjusted by a technician. I've sent you a private message (purple envelope at the top right of your screen) so I can arrange an appointment.

 

Speak soon Smiley Very Happy

 

Josh
