Hello, have had no TV guide for a while and am being quoted M58.

Re: M58 error and no TV Guide information

Assuming you definitely have a TiVo and not a V6 (if you're not sure, check here ), the box has its internet connection inbuilt, this error is often symptomatic of your box not having been connected to VM's network for an extended period of time. You've not said specifically what you've already tried, so I won't make any assumptions.

1: Does your OnDemand service work? This also uses the same internet connection and if your box has been deactivated, this might also not work.

2: Do you have any flashing green LEDs on the front-left of your box - the one next to the heartbeat symbol is what needs checking. Flashing green = bad. Solid green = good.

Assuming the 'net is good, and your VoD also works - follow Home > Help & Settings > Settings > Network > Connect to Virgin Media services now. Wait perhaps 30minutes and re-check.

Re: M58 error and no TV Guide information

Hi michmash1111.

https://www.virginmedia.com/help/virgin-tv-error-codes/m58  suggests the box hadn't connected to the VM service for around 30 days.

Have you double checked all your cabling as per the help pages?

And more specifically followed the instructions on m58/step2  ?

If you done all that then you need to contact TV Faults by calling 150 from a Virgin landline or mobile, or 0345 454 1111, option 2 (Faultsbut best to call between 8am and 10am to avoid call queues, or late afternoon around tea time

When calling Faults you will hear the automated response asking you to press 1 for the link to online support etc, ignore all the options and don't press any buttons then you should be placed into a queue and an agent should pick up the phone and resolve the problem.

Re: M58 error and no TV Guide information

Ah yes, it’s a V6 box and not a TiVo. No flashing lights at the front and I have tried following the instructions via ‘Help’ and it said I wasn’t connected via Ethernet. Have checked cable and all is fine. Any ideas?

Re: M58 error and no TV Guide information

@michmash1111  - I've moved your post to the V6 board,

Having taken a quick look at your post history, I suspected as much - hence asking to be sure. Forget the advice for green lights, that was TiVo-specific.

First thing then - your V6 gets its internet connection from your homehub, so how are the 2 connected? Ethernet or WiFi? An Ethernet cable connected to your V6 will disable the WiFi even if it's connected to thin-air.

Same question re your OnDemand working, it still uses the internet so helps prove that bit. And in the network connections screen, the top-right corner reports your connection status - what do you see?

If a connection is reported as present (and is evidenced by VOD working), then do the same thing - "Connect to Virgin Media services now" at the bottom. If somewhere along this train of thought you're tripping up - please explain where and how.
