SORTED/SOLVED -V6 tv box-green screen
My V6 Tv box did finally fail with a permanent green screen approx 5 months after the first incident of a green fault screen.
I rang 150 and the V6 has now been replaced with an engineer visit within a few days.
This was an excellent service by Virgin media and I am all up and running again with my new V6 repacement TV box.
The recordings were all lost on the old V6 tv box,as the hard drive failed, so I have to start again recording TV shows on the new V6 box and have already recorded some programmes to watch.
While waiting for the repair I tried the virgintvgo for live tv by signing in on my laptop. I was using freeview also on my TV, but not as many channels as my Virgin TV box.
i also use apps on other devices such as a smart TV, smart dvd blueray player (but they can not be updated as they are old) which had iplayer and youtube, and have reset my now box after a few hitches which can get most TV player apps and netflix and can do catchup that way if needed and a good backup.
