Re: TIVO Error code 7400

 It sounds like the box hasn't been activated yet.

VM have recently started pre-activating their equipment, and the box should call "home" and be activated within 30 minutes, however sometimes this fails and the advice is to sign into Service status at the top of this page and run a test against the equipment you are installing. By doing this VM will be able to reboot the box or put you in touch with the right team.

You could also try the following, call 0800 953 9500 to activate the box. You will need the box serial number, and your account number and area code.

You could also try contacting New accounts and Set Up for them to complete the setup and activation. That is 150 from a Virgin landline options 1,1,1 and 4 or 0345 4541111 from any other phone, options 1,1, 2 and 4.

Best time to call is 08:00

https://www.virginmedia.com/help/virgin-tv-error-codes/7400 also gives some useful advice, although in this case mikerobbo is spot on!

Re: TIVO Error code 7400

OK just a update called virgin media regarding this error been on phone for a total of 2 hrs both times phone gets disconnected after 1 hr or so , and don't manage to get to speak to anyone so since the quickstart pack was delivered on wednesday i have been on phone to virgin regarding my problems i'm having total over 4 hrs and i still have same problem , this is getting very frustrating now, as im spending my evenings phoning virgin media , and the only times i can phone is after 6pm because of work commitments.. so i stress if any of the virgin media team read this can you please private message me on how i can or you can activate my quickstart other than sitting on phone for hrs.... 

regards emma
