I can't seem to work out what code i need to use with my new Virgin branded pace set top box. Anyone ever got one working?

I can't work out what model it is, but

It says Virgin V Box and Pace.. on the front.

Hope someone can help.

Cheers,

Dave

Assuming it's the older Pace 1/2/4000 then 20016 under the Pace brand, if I remember correctly. That said, I don't think they do a 'new' Pace one. They use Samsungs now. To be honest, I'd try and twist there arm for one of those instead of the Pace. :)

Doesn't he also have to turn off the mini menu or some such? I don't have Virgin but I remember others having problems with codes being told this.

Hi Dave
I have heard of a new Virgin/Pace stb but have no further details. You may have one of the first available.
Try and look for a model number and even a build date as I would love to know what stb you have.
If it is a new model then it may be best to go straight to Pace customer services with the model number via email on
ukcustomcare a t pacemicro d o t com
(I am not allowed to post the email address as I have posted less than 5 times.)
Please post any details you find out here.

Indeed he does. I always forget that :( However, that's not really anything to do with the code used :)
Does having the menu turned on stop Tivo from being able to change the channel?

I tried almost all of the codes last night and none of the would work :(

Well it's a new installation, and I was expecting a samsung, but we got a Pace. *shrugs*

Darrin,

I'll have a look and see if I can find a build date and model number tonight.

Also check your wands have not drifted down to the serial port on the back of the tivo.

Probably a rebranded old pace, if not a 4000 you will need the IR converter as it will not understand the IR signals from tivo (About £8 on ebay), or ask on here, loads floating around.

Also, since the upgrade of my 2000, I notice I get the channel change numbers (very small) in the top left, can not switch them off. Also I get the smartcard not inserted correctly a lot... A quick in and out then it is ok.. Annoying tho.

Yes. I do have a spare, but am reluctant to sell it on "just in case". I'm sure there'll be one on eBay :)
Can you PM me a link, or give me search terms on ebay, as I'm not sure what I'm looking for.

It's a ditv-2000, does that mean I need an IR convertor?
Yes you do, mine is in use, I have no spare.

Do a wanted on the UK forums, prob against the rules, but it should be ok. I think we have one on ebay at the moment.

Shame they are giving you that old box... You could have it being "faulty" and see what they replace it with?.
