Intermittent picture/sound distortion

My V6 box has for some time been playing normally on for instance Netflix or occasionally a tv channel, and then the tv/sound will flicker on and off endlessly until the box is switched off completely and restarted. I get no error codes or any other information, and 90% of the time it works perfectly. The video attached shows what happens. I'm reluctant to get an engineer out for something that doesnt happen regularly.

Re: Intermittent picture/sound distortion

Have you tried another HDMI cable and/or port on your TV?

Re: Intermittent picture/sound distortion

Hi @MrSW88 thanks for posting and welcome to our community.

I am sorry to hear of the intermittent sound issues you're having with your V6 TV service.  Have you been able to take the recommended advice from the fantastic japitts?  If so, have things improved?

Regards

Re: Intermittent picture/sound distortion

Hi,

 

I have switched cable and port. Unfortunately just now it started doing it again.

As it seems to be happening only every couple of weeks, it is hard to determine exactly what the problem is.

Re: Intermittent picture/sound distortion

Hi @MrSW88

 

Thank you for your post and welcome back to our community.

 

I am sorry that the issue has reoccurred. 

 

I've taken a look at things from our end and everything with the box looks to be in specification, there are no issues showing. 

 

Has rebooting the box resolved this for you?

 

Does this happen on multiple channels?

Re: Intermittent picture/sound distortion

Would rebooting the box wipe it clean? I have a number of things recorded and the problem is not frequent enough to jusfiy this.

It's impossible to predict when it will happen, but it's usually once every couple of weeks. It can be when it's on Netflix, or a regular channel

Re: Intermittent picture/sound distortion

Hi MrSW88,
Thank you for reaching back out to us in our community, doing a reboot will not lose anything on the box, all you need to do is unplug from the power socket, leave 2 Minutes then plug back in.

Regards

Paul.

I have rebooted the box, but it has not made a difference

Re: Intermittent picture/sound distortion

Thank you for trying that, I have checked our systems and cannot see anything obvious that would be causing this so I am going to send you a pm to look at this further.

Regards

Nathan
