According to the always-informative Cable Forum and this thread, the new V+ from Samsung is launched on a trial basis this week. A number of reliable Virgin contacts have posted comments:
- "As with any new STB there will be a limited number of installs across the network to cover all senarios - it cannot be asked for, it will purely be if the installer has been given on."
- "Best part is the much much sharper picture and also the menu looks great even at 1080i and quicker channel changing."
- "It has the same amount of tuners as the current V+ box. So you can record 2 and watch a third channel"
- "You can still archive recordings while watching something else"
