Re: Channel 167 TLC pixelated

Is watching the same channel also poor? If so, it would point at problems either with the incoming signal or your box - the resolution is the same in either case. Reboot your box to eliminate gremlins, and if problems persist then report your problem to VM.

If live TV isn't affected, then it could indicate a problem with your hard-drive.

Re: Channel 167 TLC pixelated

Hi,

I,m also having trouble with pixelation on channel 167 but also on others,

Have tried to contact Virgin Media, was left on line for 40 minutes and then cut off.

Did the usual and reboot , but to no avail. Tearing my hair out,

Re: Channel 167 TLC pixelated

Hi Gareth  ,

Channel 167 still pixelating ,worse now more than ever . Don't  think it's  a tivo problem  , think its the main box in the street as a couple of other channels also pixelate but not as bad as 167. Watching Netflix programs the picture is crystal sharp , so eliminates a tv problem  .Trying to contact Virgin is a nightmare , can  never get through to speak to anyone , quite frustrating .

Re: Channel 167 TLC pixelated

Hi Gareth,

Engineers came out a couple of weeks ago and they have decided  a new cable to the house is required. Coming out tomorrow to fix. Reckons will have no more trouble after that

Thanks for your help in this matter, will let you know how it goes.

Thanks again

Tony

Re: Channel 167 TLC pixelated

Hi Megan _L

Everything seems to be OK at the moment, high quality  picture on all channels. Disappointed that engineer promised to come and repair patio that was dug up to install new cable and refix the outside box , that is , at the moment hanging off the wall exposing the wiring to the elements. I fear it won't  be long before picture starts to deteriorate again if this issue is not resolved and the whole process will start again .

Hopefully you can speak to someone and get this resolved .

Thanks very much in anticipation

Re: Channel 167 TLC pixelated

Hi Ynot71,

 

Sorry for the late reply, 

 

Can you please confirm if anyone visited to sort the cabling sorry?

 

If not, can you please send me a private message with a picture of where this is and I'll arrange for someone to come and take a look.
