Buying V6 Box

Hello,

 

Just a friend said they brought a 2nd V6 Box via eBay and haven't any issues when setting it up.

 

Surely you can't buy what is essentially someone else's box whether it is unused or not and set it up and have it work without going through the activation process.

Are they pulling my leg?

Re: Buying V6 Box

You friend is wrong. Any Virgin Media TV box not supplied by Virgin Media can’t be activated.

Re: Buying V6 Box

Thank you for getting back to me.

 

I figured as much, it is an authentic V6 Box, Virgin Box, it was apparently brand new. 

I've done some research online and they are is mentions of an activation process but nothing about setting up a 2nd one.

I take it the process is exactly the same as if it were the first box?

Whoever ‘sold’ the box will hopefully get an unwanted bill from Virgin Media as it is their property.

Re: Buying V6 Box

I'm not going to say anything as they tried to play me, only seems like a good thing a friend would do and not mention it.

I've spoken to Virgin Media and they are kindly sending me a free V6 box to replace my 500gb TiVo box. Happy Days.

Thanks for you help. 🙂
