Last week my second book packed up. I rang up and next day a new replacement arrived (very good service). Except that it was a v6 and my old one was a TiVo
Better for me but the box did not contain a remote (not really a problem) but more importantly the cable adapter without which I could not set the v6 box up
I rang up and after a hour wait got through to someone who had not a clue as to what the problem was she said I could connect up using the Ethernet cable. YOU CANNOT she also said she would sent the bit out
What arrived today was a remote and a power supply NOT NEEDED but no cable adapter
Can you get one to me please I’m sure the vans must carry a spare one I really do not want to wait another week for one. Or have to arrange an engineer visit
VM have recently started pre-activating their equipment, and the box should call "home" and be activated within 30 minutes, however sometimes this fails and the advice is to sign into Service status at the top of this page and run a test against the TV box you are installing. By doing this we’ll be able to reboot the box or put you in touch with the right team.
The old method, which should still work isto reboot the V6, and if the channels are still greyed out then you need to phone to get your box activated. 0800 953 9500.
You will need the box serial number, and your account and area number.
You could also try contacting New accounts and Set Up for them to complete the setup and activation.
That would be options 1,1,1 and 4 if dialling 150 from a Virgin landline , or options 1,1,2 and 4 if dialling 0345 4541111 from any other phone

Thanks for the advice. I did try the test my tv but the page for the tv was down. So bitting the bullet I rang up And got through very quickly and the man did what was necessary and all works OK now (I hope)
