Replacement Tivo Remote Control

Tuning in

I wonder if someone can help me, my mum's Tivo remote has stopped working this afternoon & I was looking to order her a replacement.

She has just has a cataract operation so is struggling to use her laptop to log into her account & when I tried to assist her it keeps coming up with an error message.

I have done all the usual trouble shooting checks for her & the remote has just completely stopped working.

If there is someone from one of the Virgin Support teams monitoring this it would be greatly appreciated if you could get one of your engineers to drop off a replacement for her ASAP as due to the surgery she is unable to bend & see the controls on the front of the Tivo box.

I don't want to provide her account details in this open forum but can provide her details if/when required.

Many Thanks

Hi @Nikkim1 

You should be able to order a replacement by logging into My Virgin Media at the top of the page, or by using this direct link  Order new remote 

If the links aren't working either clear your cache and cookies or try a different browser

You can also try the TV Faults option when dialling 150 or 0345 454 1111, but best to call at 8am -10am, or afternoon teatime to avoid call queues


VM do also have a large button remote which may help your mum going forward.

A member for the Forum Team should be able help you out with this when they pick up your post in a day or two.
