I have a new 360 box plus 360 mini, replacing an old V6 and a TiVo box. The main 360 box set up went well, hard wired to ethernet.
I then set the mini box up in another room connecting to the net via wifi. It launched, downloaded and applied a software update, then restarted and came up with "Setting retrieval error CS1010".
Phone support told me to plug it into an ethernet connection, but I get the same error.
I want to hard reset the box to start a new setup using only ethernet, but can't find anywhere how to do this (I can't get to setting when the error message comes up, so am hoping there is a hard reset using buttons on the box).
Any advice is much appreciated, before a spend hours on hold again...
Yes, it wasn't initially connected as it was replacing a TiVo box, and it took me a moment to realise I had to swap the old cable out for a coax connector, having been told on the phone when signing that a cable wasn't needed...
Every time I try and boot it I get the same CS1010 message now. Any thoughts very much appreciated.
Thanks for this. Reading that thread, it's similar to my experience - the support guys said they hadn't been trained on these. I had activation confirmation texts after installing the main box, but nothing from the mini, so seems plausible they haven't activated it. I've plugged the old main v6 box in where the new mini was set up, and the old v6 works fine over wireless plus coax, albeit the cinema channels aren't showing (these were added to my updated subscription).
I'll have to try and ring again and ask them to activate the mini in the back end I guess.
So frustrating that they can't get the basics right. Thanks so much for your help.
Had another chat to virgin. Again they confirmed they aren't trained, and have lodged a work order with the 360 team (that you apparently can't speak to directly) to get them to call me, within 4 working days! Pretty poor from virgin.
They again asked me to connect the box via ethernet, and it made no difference.
weird how your old v6 box is working we have been told once you have been updated V6 boxes wont work as you cant have TiVo software an TV 360 boxes running at the same time. Hope they sort your activation on your mini box out
Funnily enough the old V6 has stopped showing all channels apart from non hd terrestrial 1 to 5. Thanks for the other activation suggestion, I'll give that a go. Still can't believe they can launch the service with such inadequate support and documentation.
