Re: V6 box

Was the ‘spare’ V6 box sent to you as a replacement for the TiVO? If so when you activate it as per VM instructions you were sent with the box, it will replace the TiVO.

Your not buying a V6 box, you are buying a brick.

The boxes on eBay are stolen property. Forget about it. They cannot be reactivated once removed from a customer account. 

Only boxes provided DIRECTLY by Virgin Media (& registered to your account on dispatch) can be activated.

The freezing might not be the box. It might be signal problems. Give faults a ring & they can test the box remotely for issues. Then you can decide whether you really want to change it.

So despite the fact the issue may not be the box you want to replace it with a V6 that will also freeze up if you have signal issues on that line? Oh well, your problem not mine.

Give Retentions a call on 150 option 1, 1, 4, 5 as there may be further discounts available.
