I have a BB, TV and phone package, but we have never required the phone or TV up until now. I would like to connect the V6 box that the engineer left, but I am wondering if it is possible to do myself?
I have spoken to virgin twice on the phone in the last week and both times I have been told that I would not need an engineer and that the box will work over wifi, but having read a few articles on the internet, it appears this is false info, and that the "coax" virgin cable will need to be "split" and run into the next room to connect to the V6 box.
I can see splitters on ebay etc, and I presume that I can buy the cable myself too... but is there more required than simply pluggin in the coax cable and turning it on? Do I need an engineer to come help?
We're trying to save money at the moment, and if engineers are £99, we could do without spending that if we can.
Any help, advice or tips would be hugely appreciated.
You should not be messing with Virgin’s network cabling. Any cabling that is non-standard or not fitted correctly is liable to cause noise ingress or micro-reflections in the cabling that could disrupt not only your services but those of your neighbours.
As you have not had the box installed originally, I’m sure the forum team here should be able to get a tech visit arranged for far less than £99.
