A TV box that's restarting itself anything more than occasionally and then overnight, has a fault and this should be reported.

Either by calling in, or waiting on this forum a few days for staff to respond.

thats what i was hoping for cause there is no way mum is calling them (she dont like using the phone at the best of times & especially trying to explain it to them when they cant understand her) so i thought it be best i do it on here as its simplier to explain

Thanks for posting and welcome back to the community.

Sorry about the TV box issue - I can see from checking the system you've had a tech visit sort this via replacing the box.

I hope everything is therefore sorted, please pop back to the community should you ever need further assistance.
