Re: V6 box remote

Did you pair both remotes to each TV. I believe when they are paired they should not interfere with each other.

Re: V6 box remote

Ok Thanks i will give it a go.

Not sure it will work though as that is to pair it to the tv not the v6 box. The new remote works on Bluetooth so both v6 boxes are picking up the same signal. But its worth a go.
Cheers.

Re: V6 box remote

No - that is programing the remote for the TV, that's different from pairing to the box.

From the user manual: '

Pair your box and remote
When your box and remote are paired,
your remote will work, even if the box is
hidden in a TV cabinet. In some cases
your remote and box may automatically
pair. This will happen in the fi rst 5 minutes
after starting up the box when you pull the
battery cover tag out of the remote. If you
have more than 1 Virgin TV V6 box remote,
it’s important you only pull the tag from
1 remote at a time, leaving at least a fi ve
minute gap before you pull the tag from
the 2nd remote control.
If they're not paired automatically,
here's how to do it:
1.
Press the Channel Down button on
the front of the Virgin TV V6 box for
10 seconds.
2.
Then, hold the Info button down on the
remote for 7 seconds.
3.
The light in the top of the remote will
fl ash green twice.
4.
Your remote is now paired, so it'll work
even if your box is hiding in a cupboard.
 
I am guessing you removed the tags from both at once? Anyway - follow those instructions to pair. The remotes work on RF I believe, not bluetooth.

Re: V6 box remote

Hi

We have just got our T6 TiVo box and it's really frustrating. We paired the remote with no problems, and for a while all was fine. However the remote is now behaving erratically. It rearely works at all on start up, then might change a channel with up/down arrows, but nothing else and definitely won't work via Bluetooth. You have to do the IR remote dance around the room to get it to do anything. As the Bluetooth thing was a key factor in upgrading I'm really annoyed.

We have tried repairing using both methods and the pairing seems to work, but with the above problems still extant.

Re: V6 box remote

They can be iffy if held in the palm of the hand. They seem to work better if held in the fingers with the hand above the remote.
