Hi, A new V6 box won't play Netflix/Prime or catchup, I have read advice on cables/resolution and checked my HDMI cables all are compliant, I also hooked up the V6 box direct to the TV using the cable supplied but no change, the TV and the box are hard wired and have very good internet connection, now if I restart the box using the help settings with the remote all the Apps work for about 24 hours or so then stop playing again, if I use my Sony Bravia TV I can play all the Apps without the box (but I am paying for the box) I tried to contact Virgin today but it is impossible to talk to a person about technical problems, any advice would be welcome.
Hi, No error code, after selecting an episode a message comes up "cannot play this right now please select a different channel or try later" when this happens the only way round is to restart the box as I described.
I could be wrong, but that looks like an error generated by one of the streaming apps on the V6, rather than an OnDemand programme? If you have Sky Cinema in your package, playing that should trigger an error if all else fails.
After reducing the V6 output to 1080, did you restart it? That can sometimes kick the new settings into life.
I do suspect this is an HDCP2.2 issue - check the second & third bullet points on this VM help article.

First thanks for your help, I had looked at the bullet points as suggested by Jarpitts, my TV is connected to a Linn network player via QED hdmi 2.2 cables and worked fine with a Humax box, however I connected the V6 box just to the TV with the cable supplied to eliminate any conflicts on my system and the same issue was present, I did set video output to 1080p on the V6 box but same issue, I will try just ticking 2160p and 2160p 24/24/30fps (pass-through) rather than auto detect and see what happens.
Second point suggested by Space Phoenix, if this was a Netflix error why would it affect other Apps like Prime and catch up, also Netflix works fine using just the TV with no V6 box?
But again thanks for all the help so far, any suggestions are welcome.
Hi Dave, I did go through the format tests and check display output and all were okay so I left that all ticked, on my Sony I was using HDMI 3 arc, all the TV hdmi ports support 4k HDCP 2.3 my Linn network player also supports HDCP 2.2, I have reset the box again and am just using the lead supplied direct to the TV just to test, what is odd when it is hooked up as I normally have it a V6 box restart through the remote gets it all working again for say 24 hours then the Apps stop playing ?
