having an issue with my v6 box (pretty sure it's a v6); Turned the TV on and virgin box and was presented with a really slow start up, then no sound. After a restart I had no picture, after another restart I had picture again but still no sound;
Box runs through a sound system (connected via optical cable to the TV). Other items (such as a firestick and Ps4 - have firestick running Disney Plus, remove the Optical Cable and the sound stops, put it back in and it starts again) work fine through this method (and still do) but can't get the virgin box working at all; It's previously been working for around 6 years in total (not all the same box, but same tv and same sound system).
No issues in the area. System settings have audio output set to Dolby (and not Dolby PCM). Audio settings on the channel are set to channel 1 and not Alternative Audio. Happens on all channels (Sky Sports 1, Sky One HD and Non-HD, CBeebies etc).
Anything I've missed? Sound system is fine, as mentioned it works on other devices, I've rebooted the box and left it off for over a minute multiple times (probably restarted at least 10 times so far tonight).
