V6/360 Box not booting past "Welcome" screen

We recently had our V6 box "upgraded" to the 360 OS. We have had problems with live play and recordings freezing for up to several minutes at a time, but today we went to bring the box out of standby, only to find it is stuck on the "Welcome" screen, with the power button on the remote just "breathing" on and off, and a sort of orange light at the box. I've tried rebooting it, but it just doesn't move past the "Welcome" screen.

Any ideas what the issue might be?

Re: V6/360 Box not booting past "Welcome" screen

Firstly, by advice - if you've converted to 360 then your boxes aren't V6's anymore, they're now 360.

The symptoms of recorded content having breakup are indicative of early onset HDD issues, if your box won't bootup it's likely to have failed completely. It will almost certainly need replacing.

The quickest way to arrange this is to call in - 150 from a VM phone, or 0345 4541111 (from any other phone) and choose the "I have a fault" options. Otherwise VM staff will respond on here, but that may take a few days.

Hello MikeyMcG

 

Sorry to hear of the issues regarding your set top box since upgrading to TV 360, we appreciate you taking the time to post on the forums in regards to it.

 

From looking at the equipment and connection we will need to get a technician out to you to look into this further. I will send you a Private Message to get some more details from you.

 

Thanks

 

Rob
