Re: Recordings freezing and pixilated

Is your live TV ok, as that's the first test that the problem isn't your incoming TV signal. If that's fine, try pausing live TV and watching delayed by a short time.

This is also a recording and uses your hard drive in the same way. Does this have the same problems?

If it does - your V6 has a hard drive problem and will need replacing.

Re: Recordings freezing and pixilated

Hi

 

Thanks very much for your prompt reply - much appreciated :).

Live TV is ok, however, I paused live tv, then played it back and the same thing is happening ... so it looks like it is the hard drive, then and a new V6 box is required.  I will contact Virgin.

Thanks again for your kind help 🙂

Hi Nat

Thank you very much for the follow up message.  A Technician came out yesterday and replaced the V6 Box 👍, looking like it was an issue with the hard drive.  Unfortunately, I've lost all my recordings but happy that the box is now working 😃😃
