Hi, I have a TIVO box with tight connections. For some time now I have had intermittent problems with some channels, History, Discovery, etc. Recently I have developed occasional problems with wifi reception - the signal from my router is strong but there is no incoming connection. Sometimes my router crashes and I have to re-boot. The pixelation problem and the wifi problem seem to occur simultaneously. Hope you can help.
Your V6 box gets its TV signals through the physical coax cable not the WiFi, so those 2 issues are unrelated. The box uses the internet connection for VOD (On Demand), EPG updates and other internet-based functions.
Pixelation, assuming you've rebooted the V6, is nearly always the symptom of a poor TV signal. If you are able to identify particular channels that are affected, it may help identify particular broadcast frequencies - which would confirm this fault one way or the other.
I think your rebooting router is a separate issue, although it's possible that a fault on your external cabling is causing poor levels which is affecting your V6 and router in different ways.
Get a list of your affected channels, although I strongly suspect you will end up calling into TV faults with this one.
