Ok - one final thought that's come to me before we leave this for the staff team to pickup.
Within TV Control, follow Settings > Start setup. I'm fairly sure that's the menu to re-configure streaming devices. Follow the prompts through, see if this kicks things into life again. If that works, please post back to say so.
If not... please don't add too many more replies to this thread or create further posts elsewhere on the board for the same question. Leave this thread dormant for a day or so, and the VM staff team who monitor these boards will work their way to this one. I've also raised this in the VIP-section of the forum as I previously mentioned, so this may get picked up sooner. Every reply that's added can potentially knock you down their queue for a response.

Unfortunately that does not work either, I get the same message ‘out of home streaming not permitted’ so this app doesn’t want to kick into my life again
And when I click ‘more’ at the bottom right and click on remote control I get a message saying tv box not found on the current network make sure you are connected to the same network as your virgin tv box then I click on re-scan nothing happens
Ok thanks let’s hope a vip or VM staff have a solution as I’m desperate to get this fixed
the call did nothing (neither did the many calls before that help) and as I didn’t have time to keep trying off my equipment (esp working from home as I had been inconvenienced for nearly 2 weeks with either no internet or intermittent connection. and every call i had with virgin I was told to turn off equipment which made no difference then on wed I thought I’d turn it off one more time and the app then finally recognised our box so the issue was definitely with virgin who never admitted an app error as why would it work suddenly
Hi yes thanks it now works only because I had turned equipment off, which I had been doing all week so weird it suddenly worked with no real explanation or help from virgin but hey it’s ok. for the time being. the connection checking wasn’t the issue so weird one this
