V6 box is stuck on the welcome screen and WiFi won't turn on.

  1. This morning we had no WiFi but there was a solid white light from our router. Also the V6 box wouldn't start up and was stuck on the welcome screen before resetting in an infinite loop.

I don't know if the issues are related or separate.

Thanks

Neil

Re: V6 box is stuck on the welcome screen and WiFi won't turn on.

Probably completely separate issues - any TV box that won't startup has a fault, and if powering down at the mains for 5minutes then retrying doesn't solve it, I'd recommend you call VM to report it. Staff respond on here, but it may take a couple of days.

I'd suggest posting about your WiFi problems in the wireless board here - but it's worth making sure whether this is a wireless problem (and Ethernet cabled connections are ok), or if this is your broadband in general.
