Re: Sky box

A lucky few already have the next generation box (the V6), which is due for official launch soon. The TiVO firmware issues should be resolved by the latest update already being rolled out.

The latest Sky Q box is not without issues if you look at the comments on the net

Re: Sky box

But the sky box it replaces was eons in front of TiVo and sky will quickly sort the q box, and as for the update to TiVo boxes, mine now freezes every day, and NO date for the new box, virgin shambles again

Re: Sky box

But as looking online normally bring up more unhappy customer than satisfied you would

have to know the proportionate figures to see if the Sky Box is as bad as Tivo at present.

I ditched Tivo 5 weeks ago for Q Multiroom - perfect, speedy, exceptionally easy to use

and working wirelessly with VM 100BB.

Don't miss Tivo at all - and the I year Deal blew my old package price out the window

and that's with keeping VM BB.

Re: Sky box

Why do people exaggerate so much about slightly cheaper packages.

Re: Sky box

The price is irrelevant to both boxes if they don't work, and at present my TiVo box is pants, when will we be given the new box?
