Re: Poor picture quality and pixelation

Hi,

I am also having the same problem as everyone else. I just bought a £3k TV last week and replaced the Tivo on Saturday with the V6 and wish I hadn't have bothered. The HD channels are barely watchable and the SD ones you can't even view. 

Is there any way I can switch back to a Tivo box, as this is very frustrating having just bought brand new equipment. 

Thanks

You can have an amazing TV top spec, and the picture from the V6 will still look trash, get a Sky Q box loads better.

Unfortunately, I can't get Sky in my area, otherwise I would have done this ages ago 😞

Hi Shuks6,

Thanks for posting and I'm sorry to learn that you're having problems with the picture.

I can see that you've been able to arrange an engineer so please let us know if you're still experiencing problems after your appointment.

Kind regards

Re: Poor picture quality and pixelation

Hi, I also have this problem but only on certain channels and at different times of the day and also when I check my internet speed it says approximately 70mbs but still very slow when trying to use it with devices.

Re: Poor picture quality and pixelation

Hi 

 

I appear to be having the same issue with one of my V6 boxes as others have been reporting. Several of the channels are unwatchable due to the picture pixelating/become distorted (Channel 4HD and Sky Sports Main Event HD to name a couple). It has been like this since installation I've just not got round to reporting it. My other box works just fine 🙂

 

Thanks

Stuart

Hi @stuysmith,

This is an old thread. If you still need help with this I would recommend raising your own post detailing the issue.

Best,

Re: Poor picture quality and pixelation

I experienced the same issues, our HD picture quality wasn’t as sharp or clear as when we had BT before it, luckily in the cooling off period so have left and gone back to BT for a much better picture as well as a better deal.

Re: Poor picture quality and pixelation

we all have the same problem!!! when will virgin sort this garbage out. cant wait for my package to end and just took it out in December, Can we leave early from the contract  as the TV is so poor? Surely if id does not meet standards its defective and we should be able to cancel. Free sat is so much better quality so I imagine a Q box is the answer if this isn't sorted
