'to be announced' message on all channels

On our wavelength


on my virgin tv tivo box I have the message 'to be announced' for all channels. I have no Virgin broadband,, my broadband is with 'Talk Talk'.

I also have no search facility on the channel guide. I have no Virgin landline

Can you help?

Knows their stuff

As for as I know the VM TV boxes require a VM broadband connection to work. 

I'm not a Very Insightful Person (just a little bit, sometimes). I don't work for Virgin Media (but then nor do any of the offshore customer service agents).

Yes. The TiVo box requires a Virginmedia broadband connection.

Have you by chance bought that TiVo box on eBay? If so you have wasted your money. It belongs to Virginmedia and the seller should have returned it to them.

My name is NOT Alessandro. That's just a tag Virginmedia sticks on some contributors. Please ignore it.

Let's be clear which box you have - is it definitely a TiVo and not a V6? 

TiVo's have an inbuilt internet connection and do not use your home broadband - check the heartbeat LED indicator on the front-right of the box for static=working, flashing=failed.

A V6 does use your home broadband and needs either an (ideally) Ethernet cable or wireless connection to your homehub. That internet connection is used for OnDemand, streaming & various updates - EPG included.

V6 & TV360 require a VM home broadband connection as a non-negotiable requirement, a non-VM connection won't work.

I'm a Very Insightful Person, I'm here to share knowledge, I don't work for Virgin Media. Learn more
