Only had this box just over a month and in the last week new recording are freezing for a couple of seconds and restarting. Yesterday I reset box, run test on app, followed suggested options. However newly recorded show this morning still doing it. Pausing freezing only happens during playback of recorded programs. The picture does not break up into pixels or distorted, it just freezes for a few seconds and then assumes to stop/start manner then continues to play normally before doing again through out programs. All menus work fine when this is happening, watching live tv and on demand is not affected.
Live TV & OnDemand are unaffected, but all recorded and delayed/paused programmes are problematic, this would tend to suggest your hard drive may have issues.
Hard drive faults - if this is what yours is - are not repairable, may get worse over time and eventually fail outright. If it continues beyond a few weeks and/or gets worse, I'd suggest you call VM to report your fault.
150 from a VM phone, or 0345 4541111 from any other phone.

Yes I am and getting worse as the other person commented it could happen. I’m on nights at the mo so haven’t had time to call. Hopefully I will tomorrow as it’s very annoying and considering only a month old not good really . thanks for your reply
Sorry only just seen this, it started working again properly before appointment so cancelled. However has started doing the same this week again even skipping forward after pausing. Have phoned in again as get multiple error codes too
I thought that she was writing notes for engineer and was letting me know. I assumed that meant getting back to me to book it in? I was able to play recording again when on the phone but freezing is still happening, so no it’s not sorted.
No it is stilling freezing on recordings which I did say this to the lady, although it started playing was still freezing, and she just said is there anything else and ended call. So yes I still have a issue and thought someone was getting back to me with appointment, but guessing from the notes your seeing that’s not the case, and I guess I need to call for third time today?
