I recently had an email from Virgin stating they had improved my Hub 3 (at no extra cost!) and I should now have a more efficient wi-fi. This seems to have coincided with a new message that comes up when I run the Network Diagnostics on both my V6 boxes. Under Port Configuration Test it reads "Failed" and then "The Ports listed below need to be opened on your router. Review your router manual or contact your ISP" The TCP Ports are 80,8080,80(again!),7287,7288,8081. Do I need to do anything to rectify this "failure", and if so, how, as all the ports on my router are left blank when I look at the setting? Thanks.

maybe factory reset the tivo box? (this will result in any recordings etc.. being deleted).. before doing that, it might be worth posting on the v6 forum - see if anyone else has had a similar issue..
by default, the hub doesn't block any ports outbound from your LAN - it will pass all traffic from something on your LAN out to the internet.. so this feels more likely to be an issue with the v6 than the network itself.. infact, I'm not even sure if the hub has the ability to block outbound traffic (don't use one as a router, so can't check) so it's not even something that you could have accidentally set up incorrectly...
