I received my new TV 360 kit today including a new Super Hub 3. I eventually managed to get the Super Hub is working in Modem mode (I use a separate Netgear Router to provide WiFi) but once the unit starts up the only status light on the front of the hub is a single solid Red light at the bottom. When starting up I get amber then Green flashing, green solid, then the comms and Wifi status lights, but after a minute or two I am left with just the solid red.
I ran the online diagnostics and the tests reported an intermittent Broadband fault in my area and took me through a procedure to ensure the hub cables were all secure. The main status light is still red and there are no other status lights - e.g. no green bidirectional comms indicator, no red WiFi indicator - that the instructions say I should be seeing.
The forums suggest a red light means my Super Hub has overheated but it is brand new and in an open area.
Can somebody from VM let me know what to do. I am thinking the hub is faulty?
When the hub3 is in modem mode the status LED is magenta which can look red to some people. When the hub is in router mode the LED should be white, but sometimes you get hubs where it looks amber. What colour is the LED when in router mode (the default mode after a pin hole reset)?

Thanks for the answers. I put the hub into Router Mode and the base light stays a kind of Yellow/Amber colour (not white as described). In Modem Mode it goes Red, but I think this Red is what is supposed to be Magenta.
I found this explanation of the lights and colours that was helpful:
If you ever experience a red light on the front of your Hub 3 when in router mode, please follow these steps regardless of the router being hot to the touch.
• Turn the power switch off on the back of the Hub. • Ensure the Hub is upright, in a well-ventilated location, and, if at all possible, out of direct sunlight. • Then use the power switch to turn the unit back on. The Hub should now operate normally.
If after carrying out those steps you continue to have a red light on the front of the Hub 3 in router mode, please let us know so we can investigate and assist further.
