mobileman1953 - I had a look at a friend's uptodate virginbox which displayed 'youtube' on the big screen and I was impressed by some of the content, but other video 'stuff' was poor quality.

Sorry just a general question about the Tivo box.

Do you have to upgrade the package you are already getting to get it or like it say's on the letter we received free for all new and old customers.

I had it fitted last Wednesday overall it is better but there are a few places where the V+ box is better the Tivo box does not set reminders or the information button does not work from the guide.

As I said overall I am very impressed by the way it learns what you watch and makes suggestions for other similar programs.

I was interested in the Free bit but not the £49.99 bit so will give it a miss.

Thanks for the info.
