So, can you get two of the three done without an engineer visit, and why can you only have two upgraded, why is that?

There is no self-install package with three remotes. I guess so few people have three that it isn't worth the trouble of creating one.

And you can't just have two of the three done - it's all or nothing.

Re: Virgin TV 360 users (Horizon)

Apologies if this has been asked before...

Is the 360 software gifted with a dynamic EPG? With so many late changes to schedules in recent months, I can't think why It does become tiresome having your recordings messed up.

A real first world problem I know but thought I'd ask

Thanks

No, the EPG is not realtime or dynamic. It seems to update just like the V6 Tivo software does.

One would have thought by now Virgin would be using a dynamic EPG on their new software.

The disadvantage of that is late running programmes could end up clashing with other recordings.

However, with six tuners on each box, that is unlikely to happen for the majority.

I've got it on a Sony Freeview HDD recorder, which is 15 years old, its not exactly a new concept. Maybe it can only be done with Freeview?

Thanks lonespeaker

That's a real shame, I wonder if the EPG version is all or nothing too so if it dynamic doesn't exist on TiVo/V6 then it can't exist on the 360

Every platform EPG is dynamic, apart from VM.

Re: Virgin TV 360 users (Horizon)

But it still doesn't stop recordings ending early on Sky, Freeview etc.. It is only as dynamic as the companies ensuring the EPG is up to date.
