I've moved your post to a new thread rather than adding "me too" to someone elses 😉
The standard answer to all pixellation queries, amended slightly for "only one box is affected"...
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.
If only one box in your home is affected, then that probably eliminates an external fault and it's likely to be caused either by the box or the internal cabling. Please swap your 2 boxes around, and see if the fault follows the box or remains with the room.
Once you know whether the box or the cabling is likely fault, ideally you'll need to call VM to report your issue.
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.

The box has been on all the time. The picture tends to pixelate during sports like football or even golf where there is faster movement. I have turned the box off and restarted it but the issue remains.
