Re: Pixallation

there is a tv fault on the status page, but not the same as what I'm getting,

Customers unable to manage devices on TVGO affecting IOS, Android and Desk Top users. We are sorry about this, our engineers are looking at fixing this as soon as possible.

 

 

the online test fails, tried to ring last night and couldn't get through, but it ran the diagnostic, and when i tried later it recognised I had rung earlier

 

will have to try again in a bit

Re: Pixallation

Also try calling the status line 0800 5610061, this often lists network faults down to street level.

That should normally be enough to trigger "ok, my remote fixes haven't worked, I'll put you in the queue for a faults agent".

That's one step closer to an engineer visit or replacement box, that is the way to solve the vast majority of pixellation faults.

Re: Pixallation

well i've tried to ring every day different times of day and never get through, or get cut off after entering password, when it tells you to to check the status online.

 

the date on the local issue which is different to my issue just goes up every day

 

the run test is useless, it usually goes up to 100%, and fails,

today it says "We've spotted that your TV box may not be connected" but it's on and i'm watching it to see it still do the pixelation!

when i see next door neighbour i'll ask if his is still breaking up

If it is, then it'll play out one of 3 ways...

1: There's a common fault, and if both of you report it, it may just be enough for VM to trigger (probably) an engineer to the streetcab. It usually needs more than 2 reports, but still.

2: There's a common fault, only one of you report it and gets an engineer visit who traces it back and identifies it,.

3: There's 2 separate faults, in which case both of you need to report it.

Re: TV Pixilation

but surely it's useful for people to know that there are lots of people with similar issue, so that maybe virgin can pull their finger out and do something?

 

what's the point of having a message board/forum if you don't allow it to act like one?

Re: Pixelation

I find that some channels are worse than others, and that the problem can appear to go away for a bit but then come back.

 

hope you have better luck than me getting through to someone
