Please help... can't switch from HDMi mode on my V+, 'cos my HDTV is broken!


Standard Member
Could someone please take pity on me and send me the exact r/c key strokes in order to get my Virgin V+ box to the settings/display and audio menu and then to change output mode from HDMi720p to 4:3.
My hdtv was just collected for repair and as I forgot to switch to sd output I have no picture. Duh is me!

Thank you so much to whomever kindly does this for me.

f you press the reset button and then hold down both the top button (left hand side) and the middle button (left hand side) for 45 seconds. I know its a bit cumbersome but after that 45 seconds as state above you can use the FFWD button to select "SD", The press ok (middle button right hand side) and after a minute or so the box should reboot itself. When it does it will now be outputting in SD/Scart format and you're good to
Unplug the box and press and hold UP + DOWN ke on the front while plugging the box back in.
