V6 Box switches itself on by itself

Have had 2 V6 boxes for about 2 years now - the one in the bedroom has recently had a mind of its own lately. (and a frequent Netflix error which was reported a few times with absolutely no response from Virgin)

Yesterday being an example - the box just randomly switches itself on, day and night.  Had to switch it off 4 or 5 times yesterday.

It did this a few weeks ago for a week or so then settled down but as it's doing it again wanted to get it sorted now please.

Do you mean the hard drive is spinning up? Could it be recording programmes or getting guide updates?

White light on box comes on (from the red standby position) and then the box just stays on permanently until we switch off.

Depending when this happens...

Possibly an overnight software update or scheduled reboot which then powers the box up.

Rogue remote control inputs being detected.

Re: V6 Box switches itself on by itself

Thanks, it happens throughout the day (so that should rule out software updates?) and also at night (which should rule out remote inputs) - it's multiple times throughout a 24 hour period?
