My tv picture is throwing up pixellated boxes. Only happens via the Tivo box, not via freeview or Amazon. Tried to make contact via the phone number and the website didnt help. Ive tried the suggested fixes, no luck. Messaged on twitter, facebook and via the sms number, no response so far. If anyone has any idea about how I can actually reach a human who can help, I’d be grateful. Next step will be an old fashioned letter as Im otherwise all out of ideas.
Pixellation is the result of poor TV signal, which is often the result of a fault. Any streaming app on your TV box is carried over the internet and so wouldn't be affected by this. And Freeview is a different platform to Virgin, it uses terrestrial transmitters & aerials, whereas Virgin is a cable-based platform.
You can try calling 0800 5610061 to see if it's a reported area fault, otherwise you will need to report it yourself. At this stage, you have 3 options for contacting Virgin..
1: Use the text message service (07533 051809) this can take a few days.
2: Wait on here for VM staff to respond, currently around a week.
3: Call TV Faults and be patient & persistent. Perhaps try calling earlier in the day.
