V Box Software Update

Hi, I've just rejoined Virgin after a few years away. I have an additional box in the bedroom that's just the bog standard Vbox (not + or TiVo).

I cannot believe how antiquated it is. Is there any software update I can do for this or check if it's up to date? It looks dreadful and handle awfully!

Re: V Box Software Update

A VHD is a basic box, If you need fancy featues you need to upgrade to a Tivo.

Re: V Box Software Update

It's not just 'fancy' features haha! The EPG looks ancient and looks worse than standard definition. I just thought there might be a way to up date/might be an update available, not that loads the features, but just tidies it up a bit 👍

Re: V Box Software Update

The legacy middleware platform these boxes use is now well past its sell-by date, & is running at capacity. A few years ago when a modification was made to the firmware it caused absolute chaos, so I don't think you will see any more updates. VM's standard box is now the TiVO, with the other boxes gradually being phased out as existing customers renew their contracts.
