Just had virgin installed about 6 this afternoon, mum and dad are not happy due to virgin messing the order up and not available to install theres for them, also they gave them the BIGGGG V+HD BOX, wow it's big.

Anyways i have mine installed and i say it's pretty good.. i Have a standard HD box

learnt a new trick with the remote being able to turn the tv of and on and also the volume :)

For £30 p/m I can't really grumble. TBF, if it was £50, I'd still have it.

Had Sky and Virgin - would never go back to Sky for all the reasons above, picture cuts out in bad weather, interenet slow

Anyway - we had V+ HD box installed after having the normal box - anyoen knwo why it doesnt turn the tv straight over when you turn the box on? It used to fo rthe old one if i was just watching digital through the TV, but now i have to have TV on HDMI source when turn box on

Guy came at 10 instead of 1-6 destroying my lie in. Anyway we already had the cables so was just connecting stuff. Then his iphone couldn't join the wifi (fail) so he had to borrow my laptop. Anyway virgin's system isn't giving us the activation page, he thought it was due to been early, but it's still not doing it now. So atm we have phone and tv but no internet. Routers getting signal though so we just have to wait.


I have ordered for an technician to come next Thursday I'm currently enjoying my V HD but some channels keep fuzzing up, the box crashes at times..

What are you paying a month i wouldn't mind updating to 20mb broadband :P
