The only boxes without HDMI are the old non recording V boxes. You can swap these for a VHD as a self-install pack for £20. There is no change to your rental charges, & you get access to HD channels into the bargain.

The only source of Virgin Media equipment is Virgin Media as all their equipment is rented and remains their property.

If you want to swap your V box for a V HD box, as advised above, you should be able to do this via My VirginMedia.

There is also a recording box, called TiVo.
