If your live TV is unaffected, then you probably have the early signs of a hard drive failing - which will only get progressively worse and eventually become terminal.
I suggest calling Virgin to report your fault. 150 from a VM landline or 0345 4541111 from any other phone. Follow the options for "I have a fault with my TV service", and the agent should arrange a replacement box for you.
