My Main V6 tv box will not boot up. Gets to the welcome screen and starts making a strange beeping noise, screen then goes blank. Tried reset a few times with no joy. The other old tivo box upstairs still Ok as are all other services. Please advise.
Any TV box that won't startup has a fault, and should be reported accordingly. Furthermore, a beeping noise is likely to indicate hard drive failure.
You have two options for reporting this fault: Call in on 150 from a VM phone of 0345 4541111 from any other phone. Or alternatively wait on this forum and a VM staff member should pick this thread up in a couple of days - response times may vary this weekend.
