What happened to the blue button?

A few months ago the blue button for choosing the HD channel disappeared on both my v6 boxes. Are there any plans to bring it back?

Its still on both my boxes & there have been no new firmware releases to remove it.

Strange. Why would it disappear?

Mine works for them all apart from Channel 4/4HD which is mildly irritating!

Try rebooting your box. That should bring the blue button option back.

Just tried that but no change. I can see the blue button option on channels 105, 106, 107 but not on 102, 103 or 104.

102 is BBC2 HD now unless you are in Scotland. If you are in Scotland, STV HD is now on 103. These should be the only exceptions.

Re: What happened to the blue button?

Channel 102 is BBC2 HD so there is no option

Channel 103 is ITV1 and for me does not offer the option to connect to the HD channel via the Blue button

Channel 104 is Ch4 and as far as I can remember it has never worked for me with the Blue button

It could simply be the way Virgin do the roll outs of software updates and it will eventually happen.

The option is there under the program guide to only list HD channels , oddly enough by pressing the blue button when in guide and selecting HD.  🙂

I am in Scotland, why the difference in Scotland? 103 is definitely not in HD in my case.
