V6 box

About 3 month ago my multi room v6 box upstairs which I paid for suddenly stopped working so I rang vm and then they sent me a replacement tivo box out. So I explained that I had a v6 upstairs too and then verified that I did have that and they sent the wrong box out. So I spoke to them and they said they would sort this mess up and now 3 month later they have not sent me nothing out apart from the new modem. This is absolutely ridiculous and I'm going to cancel my vm altogether soon as this is not acceptable cos the tivo box is shocking and I should not have to settle for this. Disgrace and they still haven't sorted

Re: V6 box

Let's start from the beginning here, and establish some basics...

How many TV boxes do you have in your home, and what combination of TiVo/V6 are they?

There have been incidences in (admittedly not-so-recent) past times of V6 shortages, and TiVo's have been used as temporary replacements. And it's entirely feasible that, if you don't follow up the replacement back to a V6, that it could be forgotten about.

Let's approach this in a methodical way and the staff on here will be well-placed to assist. But that includes establishing exactly what's happened here, and the course of events.

Re: V6 box

I have a v6 downstairs and had a v6 upstairs. The v6 upstairs stopped working because couldn't connect to the Internet so they said they would replace it. In turn they sent out a tivo so I phoned them and they agreed they was in the wrong. So to make up they said they would send out the new v6 box for upstairs and update my existing v6 box downstairs. Still not received either yet but today I received a new modem. Im still paying for this service and I think enough is enough. I'm definitely not into getting palmed off especially with the tivo box which has to be worse than a free view box. I should not have to keep wasting my time and money reminded vm of their duties because if I forgot to pay them then im sure they would not be as patient. Get my drift

Re: V6 box

When was it that you reported your upstairs V6 as faulty, and it was replaced?

I'm not sure what "update" you were promised for your V6 downstairs, that could mean almost anything and probably means absolutely nothing!!

Have you reported a problem with your broadband/modem? Because if not, then straight away then that's possibly an error on VM's part which needs rectifying. VM do (far too often) have a habit of making what can be an easily-resolved CS query, overcomplicated, and can too easily tie themselves in knots trying to fix it... BUT that's all the more reason to methodically establish what's gone on here - so that the staff who subsequently respond have a head-start in what needs sorting.

And on that front, I can't decide whether you just need a TiVo replaced with a V6, or where the modem comes into things. Or do you have 2 bits of kit needing replacing?

Re: V6 box

Currently there are no V6 fault replacements done via self install, so it'll need to be an engineer to resolve this.

That's what you should have had originally for a V6 issue if diagnostics suggested that a remote fix wasn't possible.
