    I've gone and broken the cable box again...
    there's a little box that plugs in the back to which the cable goes but like last time its snapped off (personally i reckon its a design flaw) so i'll have to call virgin media tomorrow and either ask for the part to be replaced or get a new updated box which is what i'd prefer.

    Just have to tell kaz we've no cable till friday :wacko:

    The box keeps resetting itself so he went to look at the back to see if there was any loose connections

    oh forgot to mention apart from the possible £25 call out charge if the guy comes out and theres no one over the age of 18 at the house he'll charge an additional £10

    there certainly finding new ways of getting money from us
