Virgin Media TiVo review Review

25 July 2011
  • Summary: TiVo is a must-have upgrade if you currently get your TV through Virgin Media and want to continue doing so, or if you want the most powerful PVR on the market. For everyone else, there's still much work to be done on the software before we can recommend it as a reason to switch TV providers.
  • Pros: Three tuners, Large hard drive, Generally fast menus, Quiet fan, Can recover deleted recordings
  • Cons: Disappointing on-demand feature, Not as easy to use as expected, EPG doesn't show live info, Slow recording menus, Still some software bugs

  • Conclusion: A huge advance on the V+ box, with more capacity, features and better performance; the 1TB version is too expensive, though

Virgin Media TiVo

What Hi-Fi?
10 June 2011
  • Excerpt: TiVo technology has been a big hit in the US, where it launched in 1999, but it’s had a more chequered history in the UK. This time, though, TiVo is convinced its deal with Virgin Media will be a success. To get the new box you’ll have to pay an ‘activation fee’ of £200 (£150 to existing Virgin customers), plus a £40 installation charge, then an additional £3/month over the norm for the XL TiVo package.
  • Pros: Immense recording flexibility, large 1TB hard drive, good picture and sound
  • Cons: Not as much HD or 3D material as on Sky, only in areas with Virgin cable network

  • Summary: We look at the new set top box from Virgin Media and check out if its claim of knowing us better than we know ourselves is really true.
  • Pros: 1TB hard drive, Three tuners, Clear and instinctive interface, Suggests shows you would like, Scroll back 7 days in TV schedule
  • Cons: Features not fully formed, Remote too complex, Interface can be slow
