If you care to read other comments, most of us have had replacement remotes, several of them.It’s a software fault. Virginmedia have already looked into it. Any way unless you have this problem, it has nothing to do with you. End of story.
“This is still an ongoing issue and can be intermittent. What you have already done is the current work around until we do fix the issue fully. Currently we're awaiting an update in regards to an estimated fix time. As soon as we know more, we shall let you know. Sorry for the inconvenience.”
Forum team admitting there was a credible software issue in 2017. No update was issued by virginmedia on forum as stated would be in due course, Issue still exists. End of story!
Well done - sweeneytoddy - you control your anger much better that I do.
This is a known, admitted software issue which has been apparent for more than 2 years. It is not acceptable in any industry - more especially a customer-facing industry such as VM - that there is no commitment whatsoever from the supplier to correcting this fault. I reiterate that I pay more than £1200 per annum for VM services and expect much better service than I am receiving.
Thank for your post on the community although I'm sorry to hear that you're having some issues with your V6 remote.
I have checked with our support team and can confirm there are not any on going, general issues that will affect a remote controls functionality, however this could be caused by a host of individual issues.
A correctly configured V6 remote should operate on Bluetooth when it has been paired to the V6 box, however if it hasn’t been paired it will operate via Infra Red. There are a host of different household devices that could interfere with a remote functioning correctly, such as other Bluetooth enabled device and even low energy light bulbs.
If you are having issues with your remote please try to pair this remote again by going through the following steps;
1. Go to Home > Help & Settings > Settings > Devices > Remote Control Pairing.
2. Press and hold the Info button for 7 seconds until the light at the top of the remote goes solid green then flashes green twice.
If after this you are still having issues, please give our team a call on 150 / 0345 454 1111 who will be able to look into this further. We are unable to look into this further, or arrange for new remotes over this community forum.
