Virgin Media Tricks You Need to Know

Virgin's set-top box comes with a 1TB hard drive, which has enough room to store an incredible 100 hours of full HD TV. However, there is a quick trick that can help you fit more of your favourite programming onto this unit.

You can record up to 500 hours of content on the device by simply switching to standard definition when you record, which is more than 1,000 episodes of Eastenders or 300 blockbuster films.

Here are some other tips and tricks you should know… 


Customise your Channels

Did you know that you could tailor your channel guide to only show your favourites, making it even easier for you to find sports and movies? Just select Channel Guide by pressing the Guide button on your remote, scrolling left, and pressing OK.


Don't Panic if you Delete a Show

It's easily done. You accidentally hit the delete button on your remote while navigating the seemingly endless list of recordings.

Fortunately, Virgin has an undelete tool that enables you to recover shows and movies that you unintentionally deleted. Go to My Shows > Accessibility to use this feature. Choose Recordings Recently Deleted. Then choose the deleted programme and select Recover This Show.


How to Record Six Shows and Watch More

What if your favourite TV series, movies, and sporting events are all happening at once? With Virgin's V6 box, six recordings may be produced simultaneously, guaranteeing that you won't miss a thing, even if your TV's schedule conflicts. 

You can actually watch a seventh show while the other six are being recorded. Any shows you already have stored on the V6 box or that are available for catch-up on the Netflix or BBC iPlayer apps make this possible.

Find your Lost Remote

The remote always seems to disappear right when you need it, if you're anything like us. Fortunately, Virgin has a simple method for finding this channel changer. 

Simply go to the V6 box and hold the Channel Up button if you can't find the remote. As soon as ten seconds have passed, the indispensable accessory will begin to bleep.

Move your Router

If you want the strongest signal possible to be sent throughout your house, positioning your router properly is essential. Although hiding the unsightly black box behind the TV can be quite alluring, doing so can negatively affect the quality of your broadband connection.

According to Virgin, it's a good idea to position your router in the open and away from objects that can interfere. As these can also slow down your downloads, you should always strive to keep the router away from other digital devices like televisions, wireless speakers, and cordless phones.
