My standard reply to all such queries applies just as well... If you've had a replacement box and the issues persist, then either you've been unlucky with 2 faulty boxes, or the problem is in your external cabling somewhere. Whilst you're quite entitled to use the complaints process, I don't think it's intended for fault rectification purposes.
Pixellated pictures on live TV are often the sign of a signal fault. If you've rebooted your box once, then there's likely a fault somewhere, so this will need VM to intervene. You're likely to need either an engineer visit or a replacement box, depending on what VM's remote diagnostics turn up.
First check the automated faults line for any existing issues in your area that could be the cause: 0800 5610061. If nothing's reported, assume VM don't know about your fault and ideally you'll need to call them.
150 from a VM phone, 0345 4541111 from any other phone - choose the options for "I have a fault with my TV service". Alternatively you can wait on here for staff to respond, which may take a day or so.
