Re: Error 603

Hi Loula1,

Have you followed the online help for tv-error-codes/603 ?

VM recently updated the V6 and since then problems occur if people are using 4K TV's and  either have the HDMI cables in ports that aren't HDMI2.2 compliant, or are using cables that aren't compliant with the HDMI2.2 standards. This affects both HD and 4K. explanation of HDMI cables 

Have you tried swapping ports on your TV, or connected using HDMI2.2 cables?

Re: Error 603

newapollo has already given you the link for the error code site, but are you sure you're getting this same problem on recorded programmes?

I'd certainly expect to see it with VOD in some circumstances, but recorded content is different.

Re: Error 603

603 is specific to On Demand content as far as I know.

Errors with recordings should generate a different error and code.

Re: Error 603

Thanks for your response, I’ve checked again, it is a programme I’ve recorded, when I go to try and watch it, it goes through itvhub and error 603 appears 🤷‍♀️

Re: Error 603

Eureka.... If the "recorded" programme is going to VOD, it's not recorded.

What you have is a "bookmark", which is a shortcut to VOD. It behaves very similarly to recorded content in terms of accessing it (which is the intention) but is actually On Demand.
