We have 2 boxes, one downstairs (works perfectly) and one upstairs. The one upstairs lost all channels midweek and cannot seem to locate any, stuck on 16% and it doesn't move. Eventually the screen goes black.
I have checked all cables and WiFi signal and everything is connected. The remote is also being rather unresponsive/ slow to respond.
I've tried ringing virgin and it just gives me a message saying that there is a known fault in the area, but that is to do with on demand services.
I have swapped the box and moved downstairs and it works fine.
Moved it back upstairs and it's back to being stuck at 16%. It says that it has 100% WiFi signal and successfully connected. I've tried the connect to virgin media option in the menu and it says its successfully connected.
So the internet connection is working, but if the box works in a different location that suggests a problem with your internal coax cabling that carries TV signals to the other room.
Have you made any changes to your account recently, are you definitely paying for a multiroom subscription? I'd expect the same box to fail regardless of connection (rather than the connection-point fail regardless of box) but it's something else to rule out.
Best you can check is that all the obvious connections are finger-tight, otherwise you'll need to call in and report your service fault. How far VM can troubleshoot internal cabling in the current climate, I'm not sure. But there's one way to find out.

I have made no changes to the account and all was working fine until middle of last week.
I tried calling them this afternoon, it's impossible to actually get to talk to someone, all I keep getting is automated messages that tell me there is a known fault and they are working to fix it. Guess I'll try again tomorrow.
