Firstly I have never sigind up to any forum's... After receiving my v6 couple of days ago I felt I had to post. As an enthusiast in Audi and video and a geek for picture quality...I must say I am not impressed at all. Most people seem to get an illusion that picture is cleaner and better than the TiVo...well it's worse... The colour collaboration if nowhere near as good as the old TiVo hovever I must admit that the white levels are better... Yes the box is faster but the old TiVo shouldn't be that slow... There is minimal difference between sd and hd not because it has higher components but the picture has been softened...the TiVo seem to uses heavy filtering to smooth any grain which has taken the detail away... Now I have set sharpness to full yet it still seems less detailed and blurry... Soo much tech ...powered by state of the art fibre yet cheap off the shelf freevview boxes can perform better on picture... Yes v6 has many features and the menu system is great...but without good picture quality all this tech seems a waste... I'm switching back to TiVo. .
