I don't know if the hardware on the voda tv boxes has been updated in recent years, but in the early years (remember it's been around since 2010) there were issues being seen with HDMI and Samsung tv's (search the ancient forums on geekzone). Flicking to using component cable solved the problem but broke the deal on reasonable expectations of compatibility.

HDMI has been through a lot of revisions, and chip vendors are notorious for the 'good enough' approach to market. I suspect you have an unhappy combo that no amount of set top box replacements will repair.

Happy to be proved wrong though!

Have just done a power cycle will check it when I get home

It has been my experience that when these things start down the dark side there is no way back

My partner thinks Vodafone TV is too much trouble and not worth the money we are spending on it

Is the VFSTB connected to the router directly. You don't have a switch in the middle do you ?




Anything I suggest or say is my own thoughts and not provided by anyone else unless stated

VF TV is still playing up a lot. Was there a recent software update that killed it of attempted to kill it? Right now its utter rubbish.
