Q starts off with 2TB of storage,compared to V6's 1TB (as far as we know) but adding boxes to your Q set up (mini Q's) adds no more. 1 V6=1TB 2=2TB 3= well you get the picture.
Q has "fluid viewing" which V6 doesnt
V6 has Series link+, which Q doesnt
Both do 4K, both do streaming to other devices, both do downloading to other devices.
So after that its down to content and price.
Everything SEEMS to point to V6 being a free or low cost upgrade- but a) we dont know till its announced and b) its ALWAYS going to be cheaper to jump ship and start a new contract term with another supplier....
Ive had a play with a decent Q set up and obviously with a V6, and they are BOTH decent pieces of kit. I like the V6 slightly better , but that's not a function of me being an SU, its actually more likely familiarity with the GUI and I'm USED to having series link+ - I'm also more familiar with the remote. Im picky about remotes... Not a hugely convincing argument I know, but as they are much of a muchness it come down to that.
What is the difference between series link and series link+?
Also what is fluid viewing? If it means you can pause and start in another room or on another device I believe this is possible with V6 also.
I'm glad you asked that cos I want to know that as well?!
Series Link records from any channel already doesn't it so what benefits does Series Link+ have??? I know normal Series Link records from any channel because whenever I have set a Series Link up, I'm pretty sure I have never specified the channel....

If you have a TiVo, you already have Series Link+ so it is self-evident what the differences are to previous Series Link function.
The main differences are:
Ability to populate My Shows from streaming sources in addition to recording sources.
Ability to set recordings from All available channels, rather than a single channel.
Both of us had Tivos back from the original launch and you must remember that there was a great deal of impassioned discussion on the merits, or not, of Series Links. And this was all due to the quality of the metadata.
Come Series Links+ and we appear to be having the same discussions. It is not unusual for the, perceived, quality of a piece of software to be dependent on the quality of the data it uses.
Some lessons have to be learned the hard way and sometimes they are not learned at all.
Nice to be able to post again, after their "mistake".
