A couple of days ago I bought a snazzy QLED tv. Lovely picture btw. I was also very impressed that without any effort from me, both remotes recognised the Virgin Media V6 box, and would change channels on it quite happily. So I had both Samsung remotes and both Virgin remotes changing volume and cable channels. The Samsung Universal remote would also get up the cable channels guide using either the Guide button or the Ch List button. Good stuff. I made a mental note to see what else it could do at some later point.
Yesterday I plumbed in my trusty Yamaha sound bar. Taught it the on/off and volume signals, and at that point I thought all was well. Went off to do a few chores (the wife won’t let me watch tv all the time) and when I came back I found that the cable channel changing no longer worked.
Does anybody have any idea what I did wrong, and what I can do to get the Universal Remote working with the V6 box again?
A clue: at some point I had tried a few of the other buttons on the Universal Remote, hoping to find they performed some useful function on the V6 box. One attempt resulted in ghostly grey rectangles flickering down the right hand side of the tv screen, displaying (I think) the Virgin channels. I don’t think the channel switching worked after that.
All help gratefully received.
did anybody manage to get this working. I've had my Samsung tv since Xmas and it originally worked but only stopped recently - perhaps a Virgin V6 box software upgrade has messed this up?
