Re: My TV box keeps switching itself off any ideas

Personally speaking - boxes shouldn't reboot except occasionally and even then, overnight.

If yours is doing it in any other circumstance, there's probably a fault somewhere which VM will need to rectify. Potentially, your box needs replacing.

You can either wait on here for VM staff (may be a day or so) or call into faults on 150 (from a VM phone) or 0345 4541111 (from any other phone)

Just to add to what japitts said, if you have 2 boxes you could swap power supplies between boxes and see if the fault stays with the box or follows the power supply.

Hi Williamhill2005,

Thanks for your reply, I am sorry to hear you are having issues with your box rebooting, I have located your account and can see there is an issue.

So we need to get a tech out to come and see what's going on 🙂
I will pop you over a message and we can go from there 

(Keep an eye open for the little purple envelope)

Zoie
