Re: TV not working properly

Sounds like your box has a flaky connection to the VM network. On the front-left of the box, there should be 3 green lights.

From L-R, you have power & online, both should be on solidly. The rightmost is the remote input.

I'll wager the online light is flashing in your case. Even if it's not, poor picture is symptomatic of signal issues which will need VM to investigate.

Possibly a faulty box needs replacing, maybe duff external cabling somewhere. It's a reportable fault in any case.

Re: TV not working properly

Hi JDSA

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to the community. I am sorry to hear of the TV issues. I have checked the system and the tuner has failed on it which needs a technician visit.

 

I'll PM you now to arrange.

 

Kind regards,
