Re: Recording is not possible error

Hi

I have got two boxes but only one is being used- it has had a software update to Virgin 360.

It was only since i updated the app that i do not even get the record option.

Prior to that i had the option but it failed to record every time, i had tried it on Fast Start and Active Start.




I hope this helps, sorry if it seems long winded.

It's possible the TV Go app  is trying to record on the box  you aren't using. Have you ever set the second box up, or even named the boxes?

The second box that you aren't using may or may not even show up in the TV Go app, because if a box hasn't been used for approx 30 days it will de-activated.

The TV Go app therefore may be trying to find the de-activated box and so can't record to it.

I named my 2 boxes Bedroom and Lounge by going onto the Settings > System > Rename boxes on my 360 box.

Try giving your 360 a name in that section, and then open the TV Go app and click on Settings > Recordings.

On the page that opens there is a section Default box for recording. This can be changed to either box.

If you've followed my instructions on naming a box, then your current working box should be listed by name there, and you should be able to record from that going forward.

Re: Recording is not possible error

Hi, yes other functions work ok- from what i can see the app is not offering the recording option because of the channel copyright restriction message. On top of that, last night E4, ITV2HD and Sky Witness decided to stop working- rebooted twice and still havent come back.

Re: Recording is not possible error

Hi, i will give that a go but i can only imagine there is an issue with the app- surely i should be able to see a record button to press and then get a ' recording failed ' message or something- however i get no option to record and a copyright restriction message. I also lost E4, ITV2HD and Sky Witness last night.

Re: Recording is not possible error

Hi @dianoga

 

Thank you for keeping us updated, I'm sorry to hear that you are still unable to record from the App and that you lost a few channels recently.

 

Have you tried deleting and re-installing the TV Go app? Have you fully deleted the TV Control App as well?

 

Kind regards,

Serena

Re: Recording is not possible error

Hi all,

I seem to of resolved the issue, although why it would of done what it done seems a bit bizarre.

After trying all the suggestions, i decided to get out my second V6 box, which has been unplugged and unused for a while now as i no longer need mutliroom.

The box was still working as a standard V6 box, so i deleted and reset the box and it subsequently upgraded it to Virgin 360.

With both boxes powered on, the app now shows the record button rather than it being missing, and i now no longer have the copyright restriction message.

Everything works fine, i have now unplugged the spare box and all is working fine still.

Thank you all for your support.

Re: Recording is not possible error

Was it to do with your other box? My second box is connected but not to a tv at the moment. I can get programmes on my phone from 2nd box so think that’s updated to 360 ok.  Can do everything on main box except get the option to record

Re: Recording is not possible error

I found that I had to have both boxes setup and connected to the virgin hub- then made sure all updates were done, then the record option appeared on the app- after that I just disconnected the second box again- what app are you using?
