I am an existing Virginmedia customer for 18+ months. I am experiencing the following TV iwhic i hope some one in this group can help me.
I turned on my V6 box on Thursday 26th March 2020 and then I received this boot up after the starting up and it said 16% for around 10-20 minutes and after that it popped up to the S101 error message. I tried the following suggested steps but it did not fix the issue.
I’ve tried rebooting/switch on and off my V6 box and also rebooted my box with no HDMI and then plugged it back in.
I’ve unplugged and plugged back in the coax cable numerous times
Run the remote test from Virginmedia site
Press Home go to "help and settings" press OK then settings then network and reconnect to the virgin media network.
Press Home go to "help and settings" press OK then settings then Test Connection to the virgin media network. It shows no issue.
Its been three days with no TV. It makes our life difficult to be stay at home during this difficult period. All my calls to Virginmedia call center abruptly disconected after waiting on the call for more than 30 minutes. I can understand that VM team is under pressure to service its customer with less staff. So i was hoping to get some help from this group. I can only hope that person from VM would see this post and contact me.
I’ve also added an image of the error message if that helps.
Note: I haven't experienced this issue for almost 18+ months months ever since i joined with Virginmedia .
It could be an issue with the signal on the coax cable. Check if it’s connected and tight at both ends and there is no damage on the cable from the back of the box to the white box on the wall. Is your broadband working?

Hi Pardeep, your support over phone was very helpful. It fixed the issue.
Just for everyone benefits who may experience the similar issue in the future, this updaye would help.
Issue was due to small extension used to extend the wire from Virgin modam to V6 box. that connection was loose tgat caused the problem. i would say for anyone who may experience the similar issue Test-Test-Test the wire goes to V6 box.
