Recently I had Virgin TV installed and the remote started acting weird after couple of days. I thought the batteries have gone and I replaced them, but same started happening again. So upon further testing I realized that it will only work if I press / push the batteries in and keep them pushed against the board. Went onto chat and I asked for a new remote as clearly this one was faulty. Received the remote after few days and was very happy , no more stress trying to change the channels. But no, same fault with the new remote! Why are your remotes faulty?!? It is really frustrating...
I appreciate you getting in touch with us and thank you for posting about the remote controls.
This is not the norm re the remotes and I have 4 boxes with Virgin Media so I am speaking from my experience here too, so the fact that you have had two in a row with this same issue is just really bad luck.
I am so sorry about this.
