I only had Virgin installed a few days ago but it has become very apparent that the picture quality between Sky Q and Virgin is vastly different.
Where Sky 4k and HD is crisp and all text and menus are clearly defined, the Virgin ones are fuzzy and are more in line with Sky SD pictures. I still have my SkyQ box for a few months, it is easy to compare.
I also cannot find any films that have an Atmos soundtrack either, even though I am aware that these boxes are compatible.
The settings menu is very basic but I have changed everything to what I would deem highest spec. so I would love to know if I am missing something obvious.
The HDMI cables are brand new and were used with my previous Sky Q box. The picture was pristine before I switched. Unfortunately the virgin picture, even on HD channels, has a tendency to be blocky or fuzzy. The SD channels are barely watchable.
Pixellation on live TV is nearly always caused by a signal fault of some kind.
If it's persisting after a single reboot, there's an underlying fault that VM will need to rectify. It could be box, it could be cabling, it could be internal or external - the important bit it is, you can't fix it yourself.
It's an entirely separate issue from Dolby Atmos.

Welcome to our Community Forums and thanks for posting.
I am sorry to hear you are having issues with poor picture quality on all channels.
Checking the box stats, it's currently showing as unreachable so I'm not able to see any of the signal levels on the box. Can you please reboot the box so it's online and let us know so we can run through diagnostics this end?
