If there is a new box, its unlikely to be launched until next year. There is a lot of speculation that it will be a 4k capable box, but until anything official is released, which won't happen until just before launch, we will have to wait & see.

Virgin media are not the quickest at updating information to its customers. I have recently brought a 4K TV and according to reports we should be getting the new box this year but I would not get your hopes up too quickly. I also hope it will be a better and quicker box than the present TiVo which is not adequate or sufficient enough with the vast expenditure we are paying
