Pixellation on V6 box

I am having a persistent problem with picture pixellation and so far Virgin engineers have not been able to solve it. To be fair they have changed every cable inside and outside the house including the cable running under the pavement to the box in the street but to no avail. I have changed the HDMI cable and even tried a different TV set but it is still happening. The only thing left is the V6 box itself but I do not know if they will replace this. Can anyone help?

Re: Pixellation on V6 box

I'm quite surprised they've replaced external cables if there's a chance the box is faulty, but I presume they've checked the signal levels coming into your home.

In any case, you certainly need to report that your fault isn't resolved and - to an extent - let them worry about why not.

The only complication might be whether your V6 is full of recordings that you'd rather not lose.

Re: Pixellation on V6 box

Thanks for your response. Not too worried about losing recordings; just want the pixellation to stop.

Re: Pixellation on V6 box

Hi @Chambers21,

 

Welcome to the forum page and thanks for posting this on here. 

 

Sorry to hear you're having some issues but we can certainly look into this for you. 

 

From looking at your account via your forum information, I can see that you do already have a technician booked. 

 

Can I just confirm, do you still need our help today or are you all okay? 

More tan happy to help if so but please do let me know.

 

Thanks

Re: Pixellation on V6 box

Sorry to report that engineer called yesterday and replaced 360 box but the problem persists. Have reported this to the engineer but not sure what to do now.

Re: Pixellation on V6 box

Probably means either you've been unlucky with the replacement, or there's another fault somewhere else. Cabling or connectors somewhere, possibly.

Either call in or wait for the forum staff to respond and follow up.

Re: Pixellation on V6 box

Have now spoken to a couple of neighbours in our terraced street, both of whom have Virgin and both are experiencing pixellation. I fear the outcome of all this may be a switch to Sky but this would be a last resort.

Re: Pixellation on V6 box

And have all of those neighbours reported their fault?

If not, they need to. It may be individual faults, or there may be something collective.

VM can only fix problems that they know about.
