FBI International was also previously sold TV2 in Norway so it isn't mentioned.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

So how many years will it take VM to move E4 Extra from the music section to the entertainment section?

An entertainment channel that broadcasts two hours of music videos a day, is not a music channel.

When C4HD moves to Ch104 (aside from London). So whenever C4HD Regions are completed.

It will happen when Virgin Media need to sign a new deal with Channel 4 (I feel sometime by 2024).

Rumour to be Channel 4 HD tests appear on Sky late last month:

https://forums.digitalspy.com/discus...ment_101138379

Last deal was signed in early 2019 when Channel 4 HD was moved to Channel 104 in London.

An entertainment channel that broadcasts two hours of music videos a day, is not a music channel.
Iím beyond caring about channel numbers. Surely it doesnít matter when you can choose your favourite channels.

Clearly, VM donít treat such matters as a priority.

You've got TV360 were you can reorder channels so that's hardly a surprise.

It's already here and has been for a while now. I upgraded my two V6s to the new 360 software. It is fine and stable with some nifty new features like voice control. However, not everyone likes it as it works in a very different way from the TiVo software on the V6. Also, it is a one-way street - once you have converted your box(es) you cannot go back to the TiVo software and you will lose all of your recordings and will need to remake all of your series links. I am pleased I switched but you need to read all the info about switching very, very carefully before you take the plunge.

Hi heavyside, have they added the 'recycle bin' yet to the 360 software? So you can recover deleted shows.

This was a strange omission from day one, just wondering if they've added it.

Thanks

You're right, this is a strange omission and a feature that many people crave, me included. It's not in the current software (version 4.39) but the 360 is due a software upgrade about now. I'm not holding my breath that it will be included. Crazy.
