V6 box freezing

Hi, I'm having a few problems with my v6 box,

1, it keeps freezing when playing recorded programmes,

2, on demand and catch up hardly ever works, I'm always having to reset my tivo box, it usually comes up with code 602 / 603,, this is getting very annoying 😡,

All connections and cables are tight , 

I would be grateful if somebody can shed some light on this, 

Thanks, julie...

Does the same thing happen with live TV? How about if you pause/rewind live TV?

Does VOD work immediately following the reset? Are you watching on a 4K/UHD or Samsung TV?

Re: V6 box freezing

It only freezes on recordings never on live tv.. 

On demand does work after reset but the next day in might not work again so back to square one again ..

How about if you pause live TV and watch it, say, a minute behind live? That also uses your box's hard drive.

Re: V6 box freezing

Hi Julie0206,

 

I've been able to arrange an engineer visit so we can look into this issue more closely for you. We cannot confirm the time slots publicly, so please sign into your My Virgin Media account to view your appointment time slot.

 

Do let us know how the visit goes!

 

Kind regards,

 

Beth

Re: V6 box freezing

Hi, the appointment went well, the engineer changed some cables, and to be fair the internet hasn't dropped out since and catch up \ on demand seems to be working fine, but the v6 box still pauses when watching recorded programmes. My guess is that the hard drive is failing.

Many thanks,

Julie.

Re: V6 box freezing

Thanks for getting back to us with the update Julie, it's great to hear there's been some improvement. 

 

I would be inclined to agree about the box being faulty in some way if the pause issue is ongoing. Unfortunately we're not able to arrange box-swaps at the moment it can only be done by an engineer when they identify that a replacement is needed. 

We can arrange another tech-visit, however we now been requested to get in touch via PM to arrange them, so please look out for the purple envelope and we'll take it from there.

 

Tom
