No sound, forced 576p resolution

V6 box has been working fine for 2-3 years now, but recently it has stopped working correctly.

Normally running @ 4K with no issues but now it starts at 576p and there is no sound whatsoever. Tried using different HDMI cables (ones that work with other device with no issues). Chromecast and TV can produce sound fine.

If I try to reset the resolution back to 4k it displays fine, but will default back to 576p after a restart.

I've tried restarting multiple times, I've also run through the factory reset to no effect.

 

I've been trying to access live chat via the website but it keeps looping me through 'Fix an issue' to 'Sign in' and then I'm redirected back to the homepage. I've also tried calling but I was unable to get through to someone.

How can I contact virgin for a replacement box?

 

Cheers,

Matt

Re: No sound, forced 576p resolution

Hi Matt

If you can't get through on the phone then VM are recommending you send a text to 07533 051809 describing the issue and you should get a response, but it may take a day or two at present. This is a text only service, it does not support voice calls.

I have the exact same issue that just happened on my box today, did a replacement box resolve the issue?

Hi Neil,

Yes, a replacement box resolved the issue.

An engineer ended up coming round, tried a few things with the old box (like changing HDMI cables, etc.) but ended up replacing the box.

No issues since.
