As I suspected - neither of those have anything to do with your STB (set-top-box) service unless you are watching the red-button on Sky Sports Cricket. The issue with TV Go appears on most people's online checks currently, regardless of location.
Which begs the obvious question - what is the problem you're having with your VM TV service? You've not said, unless your comment about "do not use DVR" is hinting at a green "DVR has detected an error" screen error message?
If that is what you're getting at, your TiVo's hard drive has failed and the box will need replacing - this has nothing to do with any area faults.

Unfortunately that's what we term the green screen of death.
It does indeed mean your hard drive has failed and you will need a replacement box.
You can either call in and speak to faults or wait a day or two for a member of the Forum Team to pick this up for you.
If you don't want to wait for Forum Staff then call 150 from a Virgin landline or mobile, or 0345 454 1111, option 2 (Faults) butbest to call at 8am weekdays, or 9am Saturdays when lines first open to avoid call queues.
When calling Faults hopefully the system will recognise that you've used the online faults checker and place you into a queue for an agent to pick up.
If not and you get the automated response asking you to press 1 for the link to online support etc, ignore all the options and don't press any buttons then you should be placed into a queue and an agent should pick up the phone.

Thanks japitts. As you probably are aware your chum Newapollo also on the case. I'm overwhelmed! Got an appointment for Monday after going through the "identify the fault screens" so hopefully will be resolved then. Much appreciate your knowledge and time.
Ha! Replied to you (I thought) but message seemed to be lost between signing in. Engineer due on Monday after going through "fix your problem" screens and will hopefully have a replacement box. Thanks for your help.
Hi @M_H_M, thanks for your post although I'm really sorry you've been having issues with your TV service.
As @japitts and @newapollo have mentioned, the DVR failure is an issue with your set top box's hard drive, which mean it's likely your box will need to be replaced. Glad to hear you've been able to get a technician booked in.
Please let us know if you need any further assistance following your engineer visit but if not, all the best!
