According to this thread on Cable Forum, Virgin are introducing a new, non-recording HD set top box this month.
Later this month VM will be releasing a new HD standard stb. This box is aimed at customers who would like HD viewing but do not require the recording options offered by the V+.Virgin staff in the thread have confirmed its imminent arrival. More pictures in this post.
Initially it will be released on a trial basis accross the country.
They will be using the Cisco 4585
Not something the Nialli household will be getting too excited about. However, it would be nice if those of us with the original V+ SA boxes could upgrade to the whizzy Samsung V+ for a nominal fee - the sluggish response to the remote causes much teeth-gnashing on the sofa now that we've seen someone's Samsung in action. How about it, Virgin?
