Problem with ITV Hub app

We are having a problem with the ITV Hub app on our Virgin V6 box. It is accessed by Home>Apps and Games>My Favourite Apps. The issue is that we are unable to watch a whole programme without the app stopping at least once during an hour-long programme, sometimes more. We get a message from the app saying it is unable to play the video. At the same time, the orange 'no internet connection' warning light shows on the front of the V6 box. Virgin displays error code C133.

Rebooting the box has made no difference. We get round it by going back to normal TV and waiting for the orange light to go out, which it does after a couple of minutes. We can then go back to ITV Hub and resume our programme. We have never had this issue with BBC iPlayer or Amazon Prime Video, for example.

Can anyone help, please?

Re: Problem with ITV Hub app

How is your V6 connected to your homehub? Is it WiFi by any chance?

If you follow Home > Help & Settings > Settings > Network, what is shown in the top-right? And if you are using WiFi, what's the signal strength reported as?

Re: Problem with ITV Hub app

The box is connected to the homehub by ethernet and powerline adaptor as the homehub is not near the V6 box. At the top right of network settings it shows ethernet connection details. Hope this helps.

Re: Problem with ITV Hub app

The symptoms you're describing are of your V6 losing its internet connection.

It may be worth trying WiFi as an alternative - if you unclick the Ethernet cable from the back of your V6, you should get options to connect via WiFi. If nothing else, it's something to eliminate.
