Got message on screen searching for account, may take up to 30 minutes after 30 minutes got error code CS1012. Rang 150 tried their robotic problem solver no joy. Rang 150 and got through to service department explained my problem after a lot of discussion, was told the service department will sort out the problem, but it may take up to 5 days. So new unit in the lounge, took the old tivo unit into conservatory to replace p[re tivo unit set it up switched on it uploaded new software and I watched the football. New box still showed CS1012 when I tried again to Install the V6.
My package states Virgin TV V6 Box. Powered by Tivo. I looked at the plate fixed to the bottom of the unit, there were 6 sets of numbers, would they help to identify the type of unit they have sent me? As a matter of interest, I Moved my existing tivo unit from the lounge into the conservatory, to replace the old unit with slot in card at the back. Switched it on. Message came locating account. To my surprise it then uploaded new software, after I removed the Ethernet cable as it informed me that there was a loose connection, not true as desk top computer has no problem, So I selected Wi-Fi connection worked like a charm. Tried the same trick, removed Ethernet in new unit CS1011 came up. The DVD player which is connected to the t v in the lunge worked OK. Now had a message on my answering machine would I contact their service department and a phone number, I wil be on the dog and bone sharp at 0800.

All sorted now, got contact messages on phone, SMS to contact service department, with a 0800 number on Friday 20/05/22. On the phone at 0800
Saturday, spoke to a service technation who seemed unwilling to help me until I could remember the exact amount of my last bill. I told the service technation £126 pounds and some coppers, he wanted the exact amount. I told him my name address, date of birth, my Virgin registration number, no progress until I played the nuclear option, put me through to the accounts department so that I could cancel my agreement. The attitude changed, I was informed that the problem would be rectified within the hour. So I hung up the phone and watched the screen inform me no programme, so switched off TV. Went back to TV at 1000 hours, no change again, and 1100 at 1200. So rang the service department again, yes they were aware of my problem and that they hoped to fix it soon. So I told them that if I was not receiving the service by 1700 hours on 21/05/22, that I agreed with their company on the 17/05/2022, I would terminate the contract. At 1330 signal on TV changed to loading service to my V6 tivio box. All up and running by 1430. Still puzzled by the fact that I could access the V6 programme account on my old Tivio, but the new one could not access my account. Seems like keyboard malfunction to me. So not 360 box but the correct unit, but it is strange it took from 17th May to 1330 hours on the 21st of May To sort out the problem. Also, I spoke to a number of engineers, sorting out this problem and the quality of the spoken word transmission ranged from excellent to too hard to hear and understand. I appreciate that some are working from home, but good and accurate communication is critical when trying to resolve a problem.
