None of these - you need to read this instead:

Re: Pixellation

I am in the Wigan area & since yesterday all channels on all 3 virgin boxes I have are pixelated thereby not allowing me to watch any television programs. Rang Virgin media to be told problem has existed since 23/04 & earliest estimate for it to be fixed is 30/04. Allegedly it’s being caused by vibrations on the cabling!!!! Not impressed with Virgin at the moment & been with them for 20 yrs.

Re: Pixellation

Hi Roxy7, 

 

Thanks for your post and welcome to our community Smiley Happy

 

I've had a look and there is still an ongoing SNR issue in your area, that will be causing the intermittent services.

 

The fault ticket for this is F007083126. The estimated fix time is 8th May at 10:10pm. 

 

Very sorry for any inconvenience this is causing.

 

Kind regards, 

 

Alex_Rm

Re: Pixellation

Hello Alex and thanks for the response.

Disappointingly the estimated fix time passed a few days ago and this problem still hasn't been resolved. In fact the pixelation seems to have got worse.

Area code 20 (Poole)

Re: Pixellation

In the Norwich area (22) and for weeks have been suffering from glitches on Sky 1 HD. Last couple of nights also noticed on BBC4HD.  Around 10pm last night and 9.30pm this evening. This is on both live TV and recordings. Strangely, this is only on one of my Tivo boxes.  Have been stood in a position in the house where I could see the screens linked to each of my Tivo boxes and only one is suffering the issue.

Did speak to tech support Thursday around 4pm where some settings were allegedly altered but fault still exists.
