V6 box Pixelating live tv and recorded.

Joining in

Hi my V6 box is pixelating on some live channels and also recorded channels.

I have reset box but it is still pixelating.

Pixellated pictures on live TV are often the sign of a signal fault. If you've rebooted your box once, then there's likely a fault somewhere, so this will need VM to intervene.

First check the automated faults line for any existing issues in your area that could be the cause: 0800 5610061. If nothing's reported, assume VM don't know about your fault and ideally you'll need to call them.

150 from a VM phone, 0345 4541111 from any other phone - choose the options for "I have a fault with my TV service". Alternatively you can wait on here for staff to respond, which may take a day or so.

Hi badboyaph1 👋

I'm sorry to hear the link isn't working. I've taken a look on our side, and can't see any contact with our team since posting - is the issue now resolved, or are you continuing to experience problems?

Are you able to try using a different HDMI cable and port, to see if this resolves the issue?
