V6 box freezes

My V6 box has been freezing regularly for a couple of months now, at least every other day. Switching off and on at the mains gets it going again but nothing else works. I've tried running the online test but all it says is "something's gone wrong"

Re: V6 box freezes

Good Evening SAB_1991

 

Thanks for your post on our Community Forums and a very warm welcome to you!

 

Sorry to see you've been having issues with your set top box

 

Do you have any issues with Live TV or is this relating to streaming services only? 

 

I've been able to look into your account and don't see any outages in the local area, or any stats that are out of spec on your set top box

 

Kindest regards,

 

David_Bn

Re: V6 box freezes

Hi David_Bn

It happens randomly and I can't see any particular pattern - it has certainly happened with streaming and recorded programs, and I'm fairly sure with Live TV as well

Regards

Simon

Re: V6 box freezes

Thanks for the response Simon,

 

Can you please make sure that all connections are finger tight for me? 

 

Have you also been able to try an alternative HDMI cable or HDMI port on the TV?

 

I can see that the set top box is connected via Wi-Fi, is it possible to connect the set top box via an Ethernet cable to see if this would improve the services?

 

Kindest regards,

 

David_Bn

Re: V6 box freezes

Thanks David

I've tried switching HDMI ports and that hasn't helped - still freezes almost daily now. Our hub is at the other side of the house from the TV so an ethernet cable is not possible. We do have a signal booster though and the V6 settings says the signal strength is 95%, which seems pretty good to me
