So along with the rest of the Country we had some bad storms in Birmingham last night. When i went upstairs to watch something on the V6 box in the bedroom, i noticed no picture at all so i restarted the box as per Virgins advice.
Upon restart i noticed my menu had gone into a really pixelated SD quality, not only that but i still had no picture or no sound behind the usual Virgin Menus.
We have 2 more V6 boxes in the house which are working fine, but after multiple restarts the bedroom box just won’t work. Ive checked the picture settings & its capped the video output to 576p when i have a 4K TV.
When I had no sound I tested that all the cables were fully inserted and finger tight, however I still had no sound.
I decided to spring clean ready for a tech visit and untangled my spaghetti junction of cables, unplugging everything including Hub, V6, TV, Switch console, Fire Stick, Computer, X96 box. When I set everything up again the sound worked.
Even if you manage to get the sound back I would still go with the tech visit. especially since VM can't get a signal from the box. Let the tech test everything, possibly resulting in a new box. Also even though your internet is fine, he might find the signal levels aren't as good as they should be and need tweaking.
