Welcome to the Virgin Media Community Forum and thanks for your post.I'm sorry to hear that you aren't happy with the TiVo®. I'll do my best to address your complaints about your new TiVo®, although there are some features that differ greatly when comparing the TiVo® and the V+ box.
The advice you've been given is correct--there is a way to toggle between channels using the LAST CH button, which is found at the bottom right of the TiVo remote.
You can set reminders on the TiVo®. You will receive a popup reminder, but the TiVo® will also record this programme, to save for you, in case you aren't able to watch it at the live broadcast time. There is no way to just set a reminder--this is a reminder and record feature. Click this link to our Help pages, which will give you instructions on how to set reminders.
Thank you for your post on the Forum. Apologies for any confusion you may have experienced using the TiVo®.
I'm glad to see that you have found our Help pages and the instructions on how to clip your recordings to reduce overlap. Dannylau is correct, this was a requested feature, and customers who record live sporting events tend to find this feature helpful.
If you need further help with this, or have any other questions, please let me know.
