Virgin remote

Joining in

Hello when I first got virgin tv I had a remote that beeps when I misplace it and the keys light up.. that controller got broken now they keep sending me replacement ones that don’t beep  when I lose it.. anyone know why?? 

They just charge me £10 for another one and said it will beep but they said this before. 



The old version of the 360 remote control is no longer available.

Hi Howard48,

As 1701-e correctly said the old 4 battery version of the 360 remote is no longer available, the new 2 battery version remote is the same as the "stream" box uses and doesn't beep. The old one still beeps's so it's a feature that has been removed from the remote probably had the 'beeper' removed.

I see that the "lost" remote instructions for the 360 box have been changed from being the same as the V6 and now says,
