Out and about on day one of the new mask restrictions. Much better than it has been but still plenty of #DoNotComply cunts along with a good number of chin-maskers

LOL. Got a @virginmedia Stream box and it refuses to work because apparently I'm "not at home". Assume it's doing something stupid like trying to interrogate my Hub, which is in modem mode so it won't be able to.

I have at least sussed out the undocumented Recovery Mode so I can hard reset it. Time to start sniffing traffic I guess.

Turns out the Hard Reset doesn't actually do a hard reset, so it's still stuck on the same wifi network and with the error state it's in I can't change any settings. So it's basically just a paperweight.

There's no useful support information on the @virginmedia website nor their community forums as it seems they've not bothered to get that in place before sending these boxes out to people.

I look forward to phoning their idiot support to be told yet again that modem mode isn't supported despite being supported.

Currently trying to figure out a way to put this box WAN-side of the router and see if that lets it think it's "at home".

So here's the deal @virginmedia - I need someone technically knowledgeable who can tell me *how* the Stream box makes it's "at home" determination so I can figure out why it thinks I'm not. I'm sure this is Forbidden Knowledge but it would save me trawling through packet dumps.

@nextofficial have these opt-out tick boxes (naughty, should be opt-in) when you sign up, but when you opt out of Email they then surface the green box. Does ticking that box mean I'm opting in or out of Sale Emails? @darkpatterns

Reported all the arseholes parking illegally outside my daughter's school every morning to @BhamCityCouncil - let's see if they take any enforcement action.
