Hey @Hanzie thanks for the hints and tips, this all makes sense.

 

In my specific case however, the router is wired directly to the VodTV box, no wifi required and not the culprit. What this does prove is that the solution of having all boxes in the same room does not make any difference. And Vodafone have still not described what exactly the fault code means, it's certainly not a customer-facing message, that's for sure.

 

I totally concur about the lack of response, and, when responding.. a complete lack of technical knowledge.

I am still getting this issue. Often having to restart to resolve.

FibreX 200
connected directly to the broadband router with the ethernet cable.

p.s the link above doesn't take me to a list of error codes it just takes me to the help page
 
I already mentioned this on Kiwis guide Forum and one mention to use VPN. Any idea on that? Please help me.

VPN is not going to resolve your issues.

 

What I like to know is do you have your TV in the same room as the router?

I have the same problem and the TV freezes is well. It sucks cause we miss part of the programme we are watching and have to watch it later after the hour

Week 2 of voda tv.. what a mess! Channels always down, periods of laggyness whilst trying to watch programmes.But hey on the plus side I’m getting more done around the house cos it’s just easier to switch off the telly and do something else rather then wait for the issues to resolve.

Yep, it's been happening to me tonight too
Restarted brand new router
Reset VTV to factory settings
Network on VTV Says LAN Connected
self diagnostics say no problems detected with the service.
Only happening on some channels... SOHO is one of them and I have shows on it I want to watch tonight!!!!
