Tivo Mavrik

Just been reading about the TiVo Mavrik box, which looks identical to the Virgin screen shots.

it will store recording in the cloud rather then a hard disc, with other streaming shows, Netflix etc.

But Cost will depend on storage required! Google Mavrik.

Re: Tivo Mavrik

It does look remarkably like the V6 but they are both just pieces of cable hardware until you put software into them and an infrastructure around them that you interface to.

The V6 runs pretty much the same software as the current TiVo with additional bits to cope with hardware function that the current TiVo doesn't have, e.g. 6 tuners.

The same hardware as V6 (EOS) will be used in other Liberty Global companies running Horizon software which may or may not become the standard software in the group, including Virgin Media.

Re: Tivo Mavrik

That's an American TiVo box. Virgin use the TiVo but it is designed to fit their network. Doubt we will see this anytime soon.

Re: Tivo Mavrik

TIvo Mavric. Thanks, The company that own Virgin is the same company, so you never know? You would have thought having only one box world wide would be their goal for maximum profit.

Re: Tivo Mavrik

As far as I'm aware, TiVo Mavrik has nothing to do with any box that Virgin Media or LG have.
