New UI images

Had an email from The Connection linking to images of the new UI which in typical Virgin fashion is Coming Soon

What do you make of it? https://www.theconnectionvirginmedia...-17-151030-680

It looks okay to me but the proof will be in the pudding.

One that can adapt to late programme changes.

Hopefully one would hope that they have tested it well enough to iron out most of the bugs and flaws.

Re: New UI images

I've just recently returned to Tivo via the V6 after a Black Friday deal, the UI definitely is outdated, the new Horizon one looks good, hope we get it sooner rather than later.

Re: New UI images

I'd need to see it working, but I can't be doing with huge graphics. They just use up screen space inefficiently and result in lots of unnecessary scrolling.

VM's version of Tivo needs a fair amount of tweaking to the user interface layout, but it's fine on the whole.

I didn't like the Horizon videos I'd seen in the past, but VM are liable to change it a fair bit, based on what they did to Tivo, so I'm not going to judge it at this stage, on so little.

I'm hoping I can turn off all the unnecessary flashiness.

And as for the Voice Control. I don't want that. I haven't bought a "smart speaker", I don't want any of that on my TV.

Re: New UI images

Others do want it though , if it's like Sky Q there could be a new remote with a button to press to use the Voice functionality. If you don't want to use it simply don't press the button.

Dream on, I find program changes happen a lot quicker on sky than v6, nothing to do with the UI more virgins failure to keep things up to date

I realise that, they wouldn't be doing it otherwise. I just hope they spend as much time and effort getting the button and touch interfaces spot on.

The young me would be horrified that I don't want it, I loved the computer on Star Trek TNG, and I still love gadgets, just not voice ones.

Re: New UI images

Will this be rolled out to the old TiVo boxes or V6 only?

P.S. The above linked PDF seems to be removed

It'll be V6 only. The old hardware won't be fast enough. They'll be wanting to phase out the old Tivo hardware at some point. It's cheaper and easier to run, the fewer differences in hardware there are.

The main reason to keep the old Tivo going at the moment is that it has its own dedicated internet connection, whereas you need to have broadband with VM for the V6. They don't have a TV product for people that don't have/want internet without the old box.
