I'll give you the same advice as the poster whose thread you replied to....
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.

Hi mate, sorry wouldn't let me reply on the orginal thread
Had to get an engineer out - turned out that the work that Virgin had done on the network in my area had boosted the signal coming into my flat, and it was too much for my old TiVo box to handle. Engineer came out and turned the signal strength down, that sorted it.
If you've got an old Tivo box, deffo work contacting VM, and mentioning this, especially if Virgin did some work in your area around when you first started getting problems. And tap them up for some compensation or a discount for loss of service.
