You could try the text messaging service. Just send a text with a description of TV Faults to 07533 051809. Your message will go into a queue and a representative will respond to you as soon as possible.It may take a few days.
You can also call 150 from a Virgin landline, or 0345 454 1111, options 1,1 and 2 (Faults) butbest to call at 8am to avoid call queues
When calling Faults you will go through a series of questions/tests, if that doesn't resolve the problem then call back around 10 minutes later and an agent should pick the phone up.
If you don't want to go through Faults then try Retentions ( thinking of leaving us option)

I'm still facing the problem with my V6Box that I reboot 3 to 4 time a day if I want to use it. I switch it off, wait 10 minutes and switch it on. As you can imagine I lost what I wanted to watch or my recordings at that time. Some of the recordings fail during the reproduction but it is another symptom of the problem. This is happening since October, but it is impossible even to contact anyone to cancel the contract.
I called several times but unfortunately it is IMPOSIBLE to talk with a human. I gave up after trying several times so I raised several complains:
But you know what, finally Virgin contacted me by Twitter. So they suggest me to reboot, to check in this forum, etc. They asked me for the link to this thread and I sent it to them. Now, after three months, one written complain, three electronic complains, tens of unattended calls, they ask me to post again to get attention. Could you believe it?
So my advice for you to solve your problem with the V6Box when is freezing or rebooting:
This is terrible but unfortunately I can only tell you to get on the phone at 8am on the dot when the lines open and get through to someone...
However this depends on how you wish to move forward with the issue, if you want a technician to come fix problem then get on the phone, however if your now beyond that and wish to cancel then you can do that by phone too but I think the complaint needs to be handled and before the account is closed you need to be compensated for partial service at the very least.
If I've helped let me know 🙂

Hi guys, my V6Box is rebooting and freezing since October (I posted then).
Since then I tried everything and now I'm switching off and on several times if I want to watch tv for a couple of hours.
As you can imagine the experience is very poor and the recording is almost impossible. Regarding to this, when the recording is possible, many times the playing is not working and I have to switch off and on.
You may be wondering why I didn't do anything since then.Well I did. I wrote a formal complain and I received a letter that they are taking a look. I called tens of times but after waiting hours I gave up. I tried to cancel the contract but there is no way by phone. So I raised three new complains with no answer so far.
Finally Virgin answered by Twitter and he's what, after explaining all this story they asked me to post again. Yes, to post again. After three months, the calls, the written complains, I have to post again.
