Pixelating screen issue (V6)

Hi all,

I have been having intermittent issues over the last few months with a pixelating screen, this is happening on lots of channels. Sometimes it goes away for a few days and then comes back, it is happening again quite significantly at the moment.

Any help on this would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Re: Pixelating screen issue (V6)

Pixellated pictures on live TV are often the sign of a signal fault. If you've rebooted your box once, then there's likely a fault somewhere, so this will need VM to intervene. You're likely to need either an engineer visit or a replacement box, depending on what VM's remote diagnostics turn up.

First check the automated faults line for any existing issues in your area that could be the cause: 0800 5610061. If nothing's reported, assume VM don't know about your fault and ideally you'll need to call them.

150 from a VM phone, 0345 4541111 from any other phone - choose the options for "I have a fault with my TV service". Alternatively you can wait on here for staff to respond, which may take a day or so.

Re: Pixelating screen issue (V6)

Thanks for the feedback, very much appreciated.

Yes, I've tried re-booting the box a few times and still have the same issue.

The automated line said there are no issues affecting TV services in my area, so looks like it is a localised fault with my system.

Might not have time to call VM today, hopefully a staff member responds in the meantime.

Re: Pixelating screen issue (V6)

Hi Reece,

Thank you for following up with me on this issue.

The issue has not yet been resolved unfortunately, the screen pixelation issue still persists quite significantly. It would be much appreciated if you could follow up on this to arrange an engineer to look into this as soon as possible.

Thank you in advance for the help.

Re: Pixelating screen issue (V6)

Thanks for getting back to us, 

Again apologies for the issues faced, it seems like we'll need to get a technician for this issue.

I've dropped you a PM so that we can discuss further.

You'll find the message within the purple envelope icon.

Regards,

Kain
