Wall socket

487C0B67-830C-48CD-AD7D-63596E56FB8E.jpeg

Hi! Just moved into our new property and we have taken our hub with us. The Virgin wall socket doesn’t have the little hole in, it’s just solid, so we don’t know where to plug in. I’ve attached a photo for reference. We have all of the pieces, we just don’t know where to plug into the wall.

Re: Wall socket

The photo that you have posted does not show a Virgin Media cable inlet. 

You say that you have taken the hub with you so presumably you informed VM of your planned move and they told you a self install was possible at the new property.

Sadly it is not uncommon for a previous resident to have tampered with the VM connection rendering it useless.

You may need to arrange a technician installation instead.

Hi! Yes, we did inform them. There’s also these. Are they the connector?

Re: Wall socket

I don't recognise the splitter in the first image, but it doesn't look to be a cable connection.

The second image is a Virgin Media telephone socket.

Re: Wall socket

First image is not VM, just looks like a standard coax for TV.

Re: Wall socket

Hi Iksb 

I think the socket in the first image is an old terrestrial socket for analogue TV, the splitter in the third image looks to be the same.

I'm not 100% sure but the phone socket looks old, I think Virgin Media are fitting new phone sockets with BT's Openreach logo (but I might be wrong there)

Either way, as Graham_A has mentioned, it looks like you may need an engineer to upgrade the required sockets 🤔

Steve.

Complaints

Where do I send a complaint to? I cannot use the online web form as it conveniently caps it to 3500 characters. My complaint is related to three week’s worth of issues so it’s too long to put there. I’ve called twice to try and find an email address to send to, but staff keep saying to just use the web form even after I tell them I can’t.

Re: Complaints

Hi lksb,

VM don't have a customer facing email address.

Is there anything the Forum Team could do to help you instead of going through the whole Complaints process which can take around 30 days?

You could perhaps use the online Complaints form to bullet point the issues without going too far into the details.

You can also write to Complaints as per

 https://www.virginmedia.com/help/contact-us/complaints/broadband-tv-phone-contact 

Complain by post

Send your complaint to: 

Virgin Media,
Sunderland,
SR43 4AA

 

EDIT Just found your original post https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/QuickStart-set-up-and/Wall-socket/m-p/4807335 

If the complaint is due to the installation I'm pretty sure it will be far easier for the Forum Staff to take this up and hopefully resolve on your behalf.
