Re: Amazon Prime not working on V6 box

Thank you Michael_JK - so to be clear, the proposed workaround is to watch in lower resolution?

Re: Amazon Prime not working on V6 box

I have followed the work around to 720p, but it has made no difference.

Re: Amazon Prime not working on V6 box

Can I ask if others are using Prime video on another device at times? I seem to be OK on VM after a restart of the box, and it continues to work until I use my TV in the office to watch prime. Even if I close that down, when I come back to my Virgin Media box in the lounge, I get the black screen after a brief twiddle in the middle. I wonder if there is some issue where Prime thinks I am watching it on too many devices at the same time ?

Re: Amazon Prime not working on V6 box

I've recently been in receipt of my V6 box and have had no problem up until today where I went to use Amazon prime and when I clicked on anything to watch the loading symbol appeared then disappeared leaving my screen completely black and Amazon prime not working I was wondering if anyone has any answers as to why this may be happening

Re: Amazon Prime not working on V6 box

I too connect by ethernet cable and it eventually makes no difference, it will still stop working.

I'm not watching on multiple choices, just the V6 box, and I always log out correctly.

Having had the problem for months I now know that the only way to get it working again is to reset the box. A complete pain but, for me at least, it works every time.

Re: Amazon Prime not working on V6 box

Thank you for keeping us informed, Mods.

I switched ISP yesterday, EE to Virgin. I never had an issue watching Prime on my smart TV during my 18 month contract with EE. This morning, the Prime app reports there is an Internet connection failure... Netflix, YouTube, Internet browser apps all work and connect fine.

Is it possible the V6 modem is preventing the Prime App from connecting? Is this some sort of security protocol that the Prime App/V6 cannot get through?

Hopefully between yourselves and Amazon you can figure this one out. 

I'm within my Cooling Off period, which ends on 18th November. I will be cancelling my contract if this is not resolved before then.

Re: Amazon Prime not working on V6 box

Usually get spinning wheel on my box in the front room when trying to play a movie/show but a reboot sorts it. Tried pressing red on Amazon prime channel this morning on the backroom box and got nothing but a black screen. Tried numerous times. Although I tried changing the video output to 720 and then it worked. But obviously not ideal.
