Cisco 500GB Tivo Box

I has a Virgin Media Cisco 500GB Tivo Box delivery yesterday and it has a smartcard slot at the back of it but I seem to remember people informing me that Tivo Boxes do not have a smartcard as it has an inbuilt one . Can anyone clear this up for me . Have I been issued with an older model .

All TiVo boxes have the physical slot for the smartcard but no TiVos require the card anymore.

If you have a smartcard in a TiVo, you can remove it and still receive your TV service.

Many thanks Ernie_C that seems to clear that up . I suppose the latest boxes will be without a slot .
