You may still be experiencing issues with Google Chrome registering a new device on your TV Go profile each time you use it. This isn't the intended behaviour, for the best experience we recommend not clearing cache/cookies for TV Go after each session.
If you do clear your cache and cookies then the next time you use TV Go it will present as a new device. Clearing cache and cookies is recommended from time to tiime, but since you can only make 3 changes per month then doing so with each session will result in multiple registrations and the possibility of using all of your permitted changes.
If you're still seeing duplicate registrations with Google Chrome, but aren't clearing cache/cookies or using incognito mode, then please respond with the following so our team can investigate:
Approximately when did the problem start?
The model and version/OS of the device and browser causing this issue
Do you manually clear cache/cookies or have a program that does this after each session?
Does it happen more than 3 times per month? (Meaning you need our help to get additional reset slots)
If you're not affected by this issue but still need a device reset, please create a new post and we'll be in touch.
It has happened again, reached device limit. Why does it do this??? i am using the same PC with the same browser using the same app to connect so why does it say i have used diff devices and reached a limit, surely this is something that virgin media can do away with especially when likes of myself on a VIP package costing £153 a month and I cannot even watch it on my pc from the dedicated tvgo app.
Sorry for the rant but can you do your magic again for me and clear them, i would be ever so grateful.
Hi Kev_B, I use Opera browser and have done for years but this device debacle only started within the last year. I have tried using chrome, Explorer and Edge but it happens with them all. Everytime i sign in it asks for to choose to replace a device, so yes this is happening more and more especially as me being wheelchair bound i am using my pc more and more to watch tv apps, due to limitations of getting around the house and cant afford a third box as I am paying £153 a month as it is. As for clearing cache or cookies my browsers are only set to clear history after every use, could this be causing this issue?? Although I have done this for years as used to have access to last place of employment and had to clear history from browsers but didnt have this issue with watching tv app, it seems its only since they upgraded/changed the tvgo app. I hope this helps.

Hi, I have started having this problem today. Am a regular user of the service and last used yesterday. I can't open any of the TV channels as it says I've reached my limit of 5. 2 of these are for 'My Computer - Google Chrome' and one of those also has '(current device' as I'd expect. But it doesn't seem to recognise that this is my current device and says I have to wait 26 days to replace any of the 5 devices.
Hi, yes I've seen the note but still having the problem. I'm not doing anything different from usual, but not been able to use the service on my laptop the last couple of days. Too many devices registered.
