Changing Virgin V+ Remote batteries - really stupid question...


Established Member
Sorry about the banal nature of this question - but how do you open the Virgin V+ remote control to change the batteries? :(

we've pushed the little knobbly bit on the back, pulled it, and so on and still can't get the cover off!

Really shouldn't have had that extra bottle of beer...

edit: have searched this forum, and Cableforum and Digitalspy forums to no avail, first.

With the remote held upright and the rear facing you, push the clip up with your thumbnail and pull outwards. It hinges about the middle.

Have another bottle of beer at it will be easier!
