Re: Powerline Adapter Problem

Hi jasonr2013,

 

sorry for the delay in replying, but as you can imagine there's a bit of a backlog following the break.

 

It certainly sounds like a faulty unit, to get this replaced I need to arrange a call for you from a TV Fault Manager to help get this sorted.

 

The call would be 0900-1800 Monday to Friday, when would suit you best?

 

Could you add an alternate number to your profile to give us the best chance of making contact?

Re: Powerline Adapter Problem

TalkTalk are very good at changing faulty items, my freind had a faulty youview box, after a quick phone call they sent a replacment box the next day, and provided return lables for the faulty item to send back, job done...

Re: Powerline Adapter Problem

well guys for the first time i am dissapointed in talktalk now

 

i confirmed id be in to accept a phone call today

 

and nobody phoned me at all

 

its a simple question send me new ones as obviously they are faulty i have put them both back in there box ready to send back

 

and now i have a cable running accross my floor just to use the youview box as its my main source for tv now

 

i want it sorted now!!!

 

not a phone call in 6 months time]

 

as i wont pay for them untill its sorted otherwise (even if it means my service gets restricted)

Re: Powerline Adapter Problem

Hi,

 

sorry for the messing round you have had with this. 

 

I have ordered a set myself, with a returns bag, and these should be with you shortly.

 

As they did not complete the requested callback, can I ask you to complete our callback survey.

 

 
Thanks
 
Karl.

Re: Powerline Adapter Problem

thanks OCE_Karl

 

as soon as i get the returns bag ill be sure to send the old ones straight back to you

 

i have to say i cant fault the forum OCE staff for all the help

 

but as for the telephone help well they aint been the best so far

 

so as soon as they come i will return the others as they are boxed up ready to go

 

cheers

 

jason

 

 

p.s will also take the survey now

Re: Powerline Adapter Problem

Hi,

 

no, there is no extra charges etc.

 

Test these for a few days and see how they compare. Let me know if any problems.

 

Thanks

Re: Powerline Adapter Problem

Thanks OCE_Karl

 

so far so good

 

I do notice thou that the one plus keeps getting a red light in the middle of the 3

 

the other set didn't do that

 

but then it does green so maybe its just some interference

 

as its not causing issues for me

 

thanks again I appreciate all the help

Re: Powerline Adapter Problem

Hi,

 

No problem. If I remember, I think the light goes red if the throughput speed drops below 50mb/s, the booklet with them should confirm this.

 

Thanks
