Re: New build with Virgin Media branded ethernet sockets - what to expect?

Sorry to hijack this post. I have just moved into a new build and the lounge has the TV plate with sockets and modules and pre wired with VM.

My understanding was the VM cable connection and phone connection would be on euro modules like the new build developers guide so it's nice and neat. The engineer came today and took one look and said we don't fit them so then pulled the cables through 2 empty module spaces and fixed new VM surface mounted cable and phone face plates under the TV face plate. It's looks ugly as sin and I know it will be hidden behind the TV unit but surley after all the effort to install a nice TV plate they could install it properly.

Does anyone know if you can get the VM module as I understand it has an inline isolator. I know I can get a master phone socket on a module.

Failing that I may just drill a hole in the blanking module and do it that way.

Thanks

Mike

Not sure but the engineers have to order their van stock and when i was there (left in September) there was nothing on the consumables form mentioning the part in the document... actually this is the first time i've seen / heard about it and i worked for them for 5 years...

This item is normally fitted at second fix by the developer, the stock hasn't made it to site for whatever reason. I have your details Mike, will get the local team to contact you and resolve.
