My area has recently been migrated from landline to IP telephony which seems to work well with one exception. My received calls report 10-20 daily calls from "no number". There is no call made (no ringing) and no message left, just a report that "no number" called and a time. OFCOM state it should be addressed to the provider and the Telephone preference service state they can do nothing with marketing or computer generated calls. This did not happen until switched to IP telephony and has been daily since (coincidentally - I think not). This appears to be a man-in-the-middle network attack and is therefore worrying (as well as filling my recent calls with rubbish). Virgin media say they cannot see these calls, yet their system records it on my recent calls log. Anyone else having this problem or have a resolution?

I've started having the same issues with my tv service too (VM say I'm not as there no problem in my area ) as well as my BT phone getting full with no number calls (I would show if I knew how to upload them) did VM say what the problem was with tv breaking up and pixelating please as I'm still having the problem ?
Thank you for posting to the thread.
We are very sorry to hear of the issues you have been facing with the service.
We were recently experiencing an issue with pixelating channels but this has been confirmed as resolved. Has your set top box been rebooted in the last 24-48 hours?
If rebooting does not help to resolve the issue, can you please check that all the cables leading to and from the equipment are secure and without kinks/damage?
The full description of the issue in the Southampton Area was "some TV channels are freezing and going blank on Virgin TV, V6, Virgin TV 360, or TiVo services at the moment". Slightly different to pixelating I think, and according to my account, this is now "fixed" in my area.
In accordance with the Ombudsman ruling a small closed settlement credit appeared on my June statement and an
apology letter was provided from VMO2ConsumerClaims by Liberty Global SSC Ltd. The letter was signed by a
Consumer Claims Specialist, and stated that Liberty Global SSC Limited is authorised to provide services on
behalf of VMED O2 UK Limited and its subsidiaries, and Virgin Media Ireland Limited.
So, according to this, my complaint is closed - despite the fact the issue remains with no fix date planned
