Good evening all,
My self installation kit arrived around a week ago and I have tried to set it up every evening and just keep getting the same results, which is a green flashing light. I suspect it’s due to the coax cable on our property being faulty. It’s run through from the basement and is incredibly rusty so I think the best option moving forward is having a virgin media wall socket installed which obviously requires an engineer.
I’ve tried to book an engineer through the phone number provided multiple times but haven’t had any luck/spoken to a human.
Would it be possible for one of the mods to help me out with booking an engineer to come out and install a socket?
