V6 pixelated replay

Joining in

My V6 box is highly pixelated and jerky when replaying recorded material. Tried switch on/off, leads etc but no change

Hi @Mike98 

Does this only happen on certain channels or all channels? Do the live channels for these pixelated recordings also suffer from the same symptons?

If so that may be due to a signal error. Check all your connections, especially the white coaxial are firm and tight and free from kinks.

What happens if you pause live TV for a few minutes and then play it back?

If that is also pixelating and jerky then it looks like you have a hard drive problem and the box will need replacing.

If no better after double checking the cabling, or if pausing the live TV gives the same results then you should call  150 from a Virgin landline or mobile, or 0345 454 1111, option 2 (Faults

When calling Faults you will hear the automated response asking you to press 1 for the link to online support etc

Ignore all the options and don't press any buttons then you should be placed into a queue and an agent should pick up the phone and book the tech for you.
