Type of box

Hi

Scheduled for my installation next week and looking forward to getting rid of Sky broadband.

I have my contract to hand, and can see that it states '0001 Additonal V Box' - can anyone give me a link to some details of what I should expect? Previously we had Sky+ HD multiroom and so could record on the second box upstairs, though I'm a bit lost on whether this is possible or not on the V Box (I'm assuming this is different to the Tivo we'll have downstairs)?

Apologies for what might be a daft question, but any info would be gratefully received.

Thanks,

Dave

Re: Type of box

I would expect you'd get two TiVo boxes.

Virgin Media stopped selling any V boxes last September, so as you're new to Virgin Media you shouldn't be getting and version of a V box.

Re: Type of box

Thankyou - it doesn't actually specify whether it's a VHD or not, but I'll assume not to be the case.

Cheers

Re: Type of box

or it could be a V+HD by the sounds of things hopefully you will get another tivo but not sure if they give them out as extra multiroom boxes
