Hi, sorry I'll be clearer. It's a virgin TV 6 box powered by TiVo. I can't get past the set up stage. I turn the box on, and after trying to startup, I see an error message saying "there is a problem with the connection. There was a network error (S310). I never get past the initial connection stage. It is not a new box; I've had it around 6 months and first had a problem around a week ago, when I tried to view the TV guide. The TV guide was blank and no on demand services were available. So I went through trouble shooting guides and restarted the box. This is where I see the connection error message. I have double checked the cables and even tried different ethernet etc but no joy.
Yes. It's definitely S310 (not C310 as previously thought). The V6 is connected via ethernet to my home hub. This is the problem; it won't connect. I have swapped out the Ethernet (in case it's a problem with the cable) but still no joy. My IT engineer friend thinks it's a problem with the box itself ie hardware problem, but I can't get through to virgin to actually speak to someone. I just keep going round the automated troubleshooting loop. Argh!
I have been through all the trouble shooting guides for this error code and nothing works 😞
Ok fair enough, C130 is quite a common connection error but the picture also helps to see what you're looking at 🙂
Two things I'd try next..
1: You say you've tested another cable, how about the same for the SH Ethernet port - can you use another device connected via the same cable to the same port on your hub?
2: An Ethernet connection on the V6 will override a WiFi one. Unplug the Ethernet cable, and try connecting via WiFi. For elimination, if nothing else. Regardless of whether that works or not (but does it?) plug the Ethernet back in.
Hopefully with these tests, all the other variables can be eliminated.

Thanks. Yeah I've been on the phone for 2 hours to virgin finally. They've troubleshooted and escalated and I do indeed need a new box. But apparently there are none in stock and I have to wait a month and ring back to request a new box. Not a satisfactory outcome, but at least I know what the problem is (ethernet port on box). I can connect via WiFi now in the meantime.
Thank you for your time and help. I really appreciate it.
