Much like OB I put a Series Link on 10 Days last night. Currently sitting in My Shows waiting to be watched. Also on a V6.

Re: Virgin Media UK to axe V Boxes from August

The V+ and V6/TiVo series links work in a totally different way. It sounds like the V+ link data hasn't been set up yet.

Mr K: You obviously aren't aware of Media Mum and Media Dog.

Maybe they won't even bother spending resources on it??

There can't be that many V+ boxes left on the system now after the free V6 offer.

Apparently, VM are now taking the V+ boxes off the network.

As some people are being told that VM don't even want old TiVo boxes back, are these being withdrawn too in favour of the V6?

What about customers who cannot have a V6 e.g. those with business broadband, will they simply lose TV service?

Would they just get a Tivo?

Re: Virgin Media UK to axe V Boxes from August

Correct.

V boxes will be swapped for V6s wherever possible, but if you can't have one due to lack of Broadband or if you've already got the maximum number of V6 boxes, you'll get a TiVo.
