I have a problem with my V6 box it sometimes flashes the tv screen white and sometimes blanks the screen this is an intermittent fault and powering the box off for a few minutes and rebooting usually fixes it but it is becoming more regular, I have been on to the virgin website to do a self test on the V6 box but when I go to the self test it only lists an original tivo and a hd box both of which I haven't had for years
HI acd69, I am sorry to hear that you are having an issue with the V6 box and this is not the experience which we want you to have with us. Can you ensure that all cables are secure, you have done a reboot and can you confirm if you are still having issues with the box? ^Chris.
Thanks so much for popping back with your update - I am sorry that the issue is still occurring.
I have located your account from your forum information and can see your V6 box - but we're not able to connect to it - it is advising that it's unreachable; this usually means it is switched off. Can you confirm that it is currently plugged in and switched on for us?
Once you have confirmed that, we can go through some additional checks with you to see what could be causing the issue.
Have you tried a new HDMI cable at all to see if it is the cable that is losing the picture connection? If you do not have one, I can arrange for a new one to be posted free of charge.
Hi the v6 box is on standby by but plugged in I have just now switched in on, the box this was on a long cable to the tv but I have moved the tv and used a shorter one I have tried different cables but the only way to fix is to reboot the box I haven't had any further problems since the last reboot last week
Yes a shorter HDMI cable as stated before this problem could happen any time sometimes it is months between the fault reoccurring some times its days, the fault is always cured with a reboot and the fault occurred before I moved the tv as well as afterwards
