Ohhhh. It's going to have glaring adverts across the top all the time isn't it.
Bah.

Still, a sensible sized disk might sway it, and the UI can't be worse than the existing one...
Hoping for a free or very cheap (50 quid ?) upgrade !

I'm one of the few who had the old TiVo in the UK. Still prefer the UI to the Virgin box. Looking forward to a return to TiVo.

Just had my SA box swapped out for a Samsung this morning (repeated reboots - engineer didn't even check it) and was told that VM staff are home-trialling the Tivo boxes as we speak. He wasn't sure what the upgrade options might be.

Spoke to agent on phone this morning and was told that Staff were trailing the Tivo boxs but they would not be available to public until late next year!!!! really??.. can anyone else confirm.. surely they do not need a year to trial?

The agent should have read the official Press Release of November 3rd, which clearly states "The new HD/3D set top box will launch alongside Virgin Media’s new TiVo-powered next generation connected TV service scheduled for later this year"
