Tivo Box

Just Wondered 

I have been a Virgin Media customer for well over 5 years now and i have had the same TV box for that time. Would i be able to get a Tivo box that can record for free or would i have to pay for one.

Also would getting a Tivo box require an engineer or could i install it myself  as i am not available during work hours.

Would getting a Tivo box also affect my contract as I'm not currently in one.

Re: Tivo Box

The change in costs will depend on the package you are on & the box you currently have. Box changes are now self install jobs, so you will only be charged the postage, but unless you accept one of the new "Big" bundles there will be an additional monthly charge for the TiVO. Changing to new bundle will mean a new contract.

Re: Tivo Box

My tivo box is very nosy it sounds like its taking off ? I live in a flat so can be heard in every room it even wakes my 8 month old at night ? Is there anything I can do to make it quieter? I would move it but when it was installed they left me with about 30cm off cable ? ?
