Pairing TV Remote

Hi I have a new Samsung TV and V6 box, the engineer programmed the remote to control the volume on the TV, this stopped working a short time later, I called technical team and they sent a new remote out , which I did not think would solve it. Anyhow I paired the new remote and the volume control on the virgin remote worked for a minute or two and now does not work . When I try to pair again as I did numerous times with the first remote it does not work or recognise the code that worked initially on both remotes . Box has been reset numerous times and remotes unpaired and paired back but will not work . Any help in solving this would be great, thanks

Re: Pairing TV Remote

Hi Basil,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us in our community and welcome, sorry to hear you are now having the same issue with the new remote.

 

I have had a look at you account and can see you have more than one box, can you try the remotes to see if they pair with other TV's in the house to make sure it isn't a issue with the Television itself?

 

You can also try our Self Help to see if you can get a resolution there.

 

Regards

 

Paul.

Re: Pairing TV Remote

Hi Paul

Yes it works fine with box upstairs , in fact volume worked before I had even paired it ! When paired all controls then worked , any suggestions why it will not work with the TV

Re: Pairing TV Remote

Hi basil123,

It sounds like the remote paired to the upstairs box in error.

Try turning that box off, and then unpair the remote you want to work with the original downstairs box, and then pair it again.

With only the downstairs box switched on

Press TV and Clear at the same time until the light on the remote flashes green. 

Then press thumbs down 3 times followed by OK twice.

This should reset the remote and force a re-pair following https://www.virginmedia.com/help/virgin-tv-pairing-tv-remote

Re: Pairing TV Remote

Hi @basil123

 

So do you mean the box which you needed to pair it to has been offline? If so, could you switch it on and try again?
