I am trying to connect my TV to Virgin Media TV box, however, it says in the guide that I have to connect the HDMI cable to the STB port which my TV does't have. I have a Philips 50PUS7505 smart tv that only has 3x ARC HDMI ports.
I tried to put the cable in all of them, but it doesn't work. Any ideas how I can make it work?
Hello newapollo. Thank you so much for such a quick resp...
Thank you so much for such a quick response. I actually think that I may have bought a wrong hdmi cable.
The one that was provided by virgin is slightly too short, so I bought a longer one. I have just tried to connect it to my work laptop and it works fine. So I am assuming that the V6 box doesn't support random hdmi cables 😖
Do you know if I can buy a longer cable that is supported by the tv box?
That's actually a good point haha. I should have tried it...
That's actually a good point haha. I should have tried it with the short one first!
I have tried it now and it works fine, so the long one must be either too long or not supported by Virgin media. I ordered a shorter one that is coming today. It says in the product description that it's suitable for Virgin TV boxes.
