Hi, I have been having this problem for months now, very frustrating. Been in contact with VM Who ran some sort of test and got me to change the video output setting to 1080p, it seemed to solve the pixilation at the time but a couple of days later it started again . They said they would monitor it but the problem still exists. Will be cancelling very soon if I don’t get a positive response to this.
Better to start your own post than add to someone elses 😉
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 fault-fix. You're likely to need either an engineer visit or a replacement box, depending on what VM's remote diagnostics turn up.
Check the automated faults line for any existing issues in your area that could be the cause: 0800 5610061.
If issues persist and there's no area issues, you can call-back, or wait on here for staff to respond, which may take a day or so.

Thanks for getting back to us, I have taken a look at your account and can confirm that unfortunately your TV service is currently impacted by an SNR outage. We have identified the problem and an engineer is working to get this resolved now.
The estimated fix time is currently 18:00pm on 05th July.
Please do let me know if your picture is still pixelating after 18:00pm today.
The SNR Outage was reported today. If you are still experiencing pixelation issues after 18:00 today, please do pop back on here and let me know. The issues could clear up once the SNR Outage has been fixed, but if not, I am happy to book an engineer visit for you afterwards. Please do keep me posted!
