Hi @Haggis1967 

There isn't a fix as such, it's sometimes how it's transmitted.

I do find that on the odd occassion I can go back to the main channel and then go back into the red option and it might work without the "noise". Sometimes takes a few attempts trying but not always successful.

I don't work for Virgin Media.

Hello Haggis1967. 

Thank you very much for joining our Community.
Can we please ask what content it was on the Red Button service?

We can check to see if anyone else had the issue?

Do you have any other similar issues with other content?
