Re: green screen

If you mean the green "DVR has detected an error" screen, then this means your hard drive has failed and your box needs replacing.

You have a couple of choices for reporting this:

1: Do what you've already done - call VM faults, but after you've chosen the options for "I have a fault with my TV service", don't press any more buttons and ignore the various prompts for getting links, going online etc... just wait on the line and you should go into the queue for a faults agent.

2: Wait on here for staff to respond, this may take an extra 24-48 hours, this isn't a real-time facility.

Glad you're sorted. Read up on the 360 and decide to migrate on an informed basis, not on a whim.
