I have just received a new v6 box, replacing the old v6 which worked fine for several months then suddenly failed. All went fine with the set-up on the new box but soon afterwards, it operates correctly for 5-10 minutes then turns off and restarts on the welcome screen.
It is then necessary to switch the box on and off to restart properly, but a few minutes later the problem always repeats. I have checked all connections & all seems well, and there is a good internet connection showing on the “Network” screen on the box. Test recordings have all failed due to this issue.
Does anyone have any suggestions, or do I now have to call VM and wait in a long telephone queue? Thanks in advance for any help that can be given.
Realistically with TV Faults at the moment there's 3 choices:
1: Use the text message service, 07533 051809 - may take a few days
2: Wait on here for VM staff, current wait is around a week
3: Call 150 and be patient, perhaps different times of the day. They are busy, there's a misleading "we're closed" message that comes and goes, but if you don't give up, there's eventually someone there!

I left the box on whilst running some test recordings and the problem seems to have resolved itself after about 48 hours. I guess the lesson to be learnt is not to rush into asking for the box to be changed.
I will report back again if the constant restarting problem resumes - hopefully not!
