Re: Virgin Media V6 box - Serious DVR fault

That green "DVR has detected an error" screen means your V6's hard drive has failed, you will need a replacement box.

The quickest way to report this, is to call in - 150 from a VM phone or 0345 4541111 from any other phone.

Or you can wait here for VM staff to respond, it may take a couple of days.

Thanks Japitts,

I tried ringing them today, but they said that the phones were closed (even though they say they're open until 8pm)
