Ok so I was sold a V6 box recently by virgin I do not have TV services so I was told it under the pretense that I'd use it for freeview (if set up with a coax cable) and then the apps and catch up function. I am trying to install the box but have come across the issue "connection unsuccessful - could not verify info" multiple times. Its connected to the wifi without issue.
The set up I have it is not in the same room as the router and does not have a coax cable due to this room not having an aerial socket. I explained this on the phone but was told it would be fine to use simply for the apps and catch up so long as there was an active wifi connection. Is this correct? As the information I'm reading on other question threads is that it NEEDS a coax connection to even be set up. If this is the case I was miss sold this and it's entirely useless to me. Can anyone help? Thanks
Hello I recently had a call from virgin asking me if I was interested in any other services than internet I already have and I was sold a TiVo box on the call (rather naive of me). I was told I could use it wirelessly to watch tv which I am setting it up to do now but am realising now it comes with a coax lead for a normal cable connection to get freeview ? Just wondering if there is any way at all for me to get freeview without having to plug it into a wall TV socket as it's for another room that doesn't have one in a rented house so I cant have one fitted. Figured if anyone knew it would be someone on here ! Thanks
Ok that is not what i was told at all i already have sky so i have no need for a subscription to virgin TV I was sold it over the phone by a lady who called me and offered an upgrade of my internet speed for an increased monthly payment and then a V6 box for only a one off payment of £25 which was an 'activation charge' I did not subscribe to any TV service and I just wanted to use this on a second TV for catch up and the apps (like Netflix Amazon prime etc). So...am I to understand I was miss sold this and it's useless as my input for virgin is downstairs not in the same room and It is unusable? In which case I want to return and refund.
Hi as another poster has said, you didn't "buy" the box as it's impossible that was the set up fee and you will be paying a subscription on top of your broadband (i assume you have broadband with virgin) costs, virgins TV boxes must have coxial cable connected to function, and have to be paid by subscription, there is no free as in freeview when accessing via Virgin the same as Sky.Regards Micky
