Cannot get You Tube via channel 198 following installation of new router
Installed our new router yesterday - WiFi working perfectly but we are no longer able to get You Tube via channel 198. Tried entering error codes of A01 and N27 but message says contact Virgin Media. That’s easier said than done - have tried ringing but got bored after 20 minutes. Can anyone help?

Ok, now I'm going to assume 🙂
Your V6 doesn't have an internet connection of its own, it uses your VM homehub (via WiFi or Ethernet) to go online. You've had your router replaced, and as a result your V6 has lost its internet connection so everything that uses that, has stopped working.
All your streaming apps, OnDemand, TV guide updates.. I'll wager they're all failing.
If you follow Home > Help & Settings > Settings > Network, in the top-right the box will report is connection status and I suspect it'll be along the lines of "no connection". If so, you need to reconnect your V6 to your new homehub.
It's been quite a while since I setup a V6 using WiFi so I won't try to guess at the exact button presses, but it should be fairly obvious "follow the prompts" of the new username & password for your homehub, needs to be entered on your V6.
