Hi all, just looking for some help with this. Since 11am this morning (rough guess since the tv wasn’t turned on until then) our V6 box is in a constant rebooting loop. It goes from the welcome page with all the languages to “staring up” with the clock next to it. Every now and then we get a white downward arrow with a box underneath, but it goes back to the language page then the starting up page
We phoned virgin up but the customer service agent didn’t tell us what this arrow was. Virgin ran tests and then he said he’d pass it on to the it department and it should be sorted within 48 hours. Just wondering if anyone else has this or has had this issue. Thanks in advance
As advised by Forum Staff member JOE-C the box needs replacing if a reboot doesn't sort it.
That will mean losing losing all your recordings and series links.
One other thing you can try is a hard reset - BUT Please note doing this will also erase all the V6 data - such as all you recordings and links.
Turn the V6 off with the switch on the back of the box and disconnect it from the mains for 5 minutes, then plug it in again.
Now hold the + and standby buttons on the front of the V6 together simultaneously and keeping the buttons pressed in turn the V6 on again with the rocker switch on the back, and wait till you see the welcome screen appear on the TV - then release the buttons.
If that fails as well then it's definitely time to contact faults for a new box.
