We have 2 V6 boxes and the bedroom one has all sorts of issues with the remote, over the past few days I have had to power the box off and then on to get it working - works for a day and then stops working but the living room box is fine.
I have tried new batteries, pairing it with the box but the cycle continues - it did happen just after the install but then worked for a few weeks fine.
The remote will still control the tv but not the box, is it a bad remote or faulty box - I did a search and have seen a load of issues but people asking to call VM directly so I wonder how people are getting this resolved or did they get new boxes?
Thanks for posting and sorry to hear about the issue experienced. :/
This is a known fault that the team are currently working to resolve ASAP. The workaround for this at the moment is to reboot the equipment and as mentioned in your post, I can see that you're already completing this action in order to get it to function properly again.
Really very sorry for any inconvenience caused. We will be sure to advise the Community further regarding this once more information is available.
Thanks for your post and apologies to hear you are having an issue with the remote control.
As mentioned by Nat_J above this is a known fault. We are working on getting this resolved however for now, rebooting the box should help.
I understand it's frustrating however sometimes faults will happen. We work hard to get them resolved as soon as possible. It's impossible for us to offer a 100% fault free service which is why we don't pretend to do this.
We're not in breach of your contract as we are providing you with the services you requested. With regards to the remote, this is something we are working on and in the meantime there is an effective work around.
Once we have any updates we'll let you know.
