Box in a constant reboot loop

Some weeks ago, my second VM box got into an odd state when trying to do an update.

Now it just constantly reboots and I occassionally get a "This DVR has serios problems, we will attempt to fix it, this will take 3 hours". After 24 hours of letting it try to fix itself, I'm beginning to lose faith.

What's the quickest way to get someone from VM out to bring me a new box or getting them to post me a replacement?

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Box in a constant reboot loop

The green screen "DVR has detected a problem" means the hard drive has failed. As with any service fault, you have 2 choices..

1: Call in - 150 from VM, or 0345 4541111 from any other phone.

2: Wait here, VM staff should respond after a day or so.
