Re: Free V6 box

I will just keep both boxes till virgin declare them obsolete then, see what they offer me.

like a few people on here i have no need to record stuff when i have on demand,catch up,netlfix,and all other ways of watching programmes on the net.

where do people find the time to watch all their recorded programmes!.

Re: Free V6 box

They record, rather than rely on catch up and On Demand, and find sufficient to record without Netflix and Amazon Video.

Re: Free V6 box

I find it so much easier to watch recorded programmes than mess about with Catch Up etc.
An added bonus is when TiVo has recorded a new series of a favourite programme that I did not know was on again.

I feel the same. The 6 tuners tend to change the way you watch your tv. Like you I find it far easier and with 2 V6 boxes I have 12 tuners which makes it really easy.

Agree about the added bonus as well.

Alot of people like myself never watch live tv anymore since we can plan ahead and record so we then skip all the adverts.

If i was you i would grab the free V6 now.

Free things come to those that wait. At the moment you can only replace one of your boxes for free, no doubt it will eventually be any old box.

Those that plunge in first with the new boxes always pay most, and have to sort out all the faults for the rest of us who end up getting it free ! Very good of you I say

Possibly, but even if it does end up at that, it's unlikely it would be affected by you swapping one of your boxes now.

Re: Free V6 box

manage-virgintvgo.virginmedia.com/tivo/boxswap is still not accepting my old email address (not found on system) or my ntlworld.com address (though it confirms that email address is correct as is the password, and they work to sign me in to Myvirginmedia.).

A call to 150 (india) caused much confusion to them, and they decided:

a/. the virgintvgo can only be accessed by a Virginmedia mobile phone (I don't have a mobile)

b/. you can't do boxswap until the V6 is installed.

V6 due to arrive tomorrow, so we shall see...

I would rather get 1 free box now than in 2 years down the line.

Not the end of the world if you can't copy series links across, unless you've got 100's? Beginning to regret copying mine across, just ended up recording everything twice !
