Re: VBox Make and Model Number

Hi - Thanks for the response.  It's a V HD Box.  But to answer my own question the make of the box is Cisco and the model number is on the box itself.

The samsung TV needs to know so that the TVs remote control can also drive the set top box.  And having put in the details it does work.

Oh interesting didn't realise they did that.

 

Just as an FYI if you ever upgrade to TiVo, make sure you choose Virgin Media's version, rather than the US TiVo as the remote codes are different - Virgin Media TiVo uses a similar set of codes to the V boxes so that an existing V box remote can be used in an emergency.

Re: VBox Make and Model Number

Hi,
I have the same situation, what model number did you use?
Did it begin with 24374c... ?
Or was it c81864...?

They're the only 2 numbers I can see on the back of my virgin media (cisco) box.

Thanks.
