I also had a letter today from VM. It said I could swap my tivo box in my other room to a tivo6 box. It also said my bill would not be increased. I am, to say the least a little apprehensive about this as it is very vague about the cost or no cost. Nothing was said about an Engineer's cost for installation. Not sure what to think or do about this. any ideas Guys. Thank you.
That seems to be the policy now - they are not swapping to V6's - only to Tivo's - unless you "pay" the "install" charges and increased rental.
The solution that has worked for several people on her is to call "retentions - thinking of leaving" and negotiate a new package to include the V6's you want. They will offer you a deal in lieu of signing a new 1 year contract - - it wont be as good as a new customer deal (you already had that discount) but it might be a better deal which you like.

Got my new box today and had it installed and up and running in about an hour. Quite happy with that. The only thing was in regard to sending the old box back in the box which the new one came in. The old one just would not fit in to it. Probably because it is at least twice the size of the new one.
Hi there, can any of you tell me if your self installed the second V6 box directly with the old Tivo cable?
I am contemplating an upgrade from Full House/M350 with a single V6 to the Ultimate Oomph, but cannot get a detailed answer regarding this, there is a cable in situ that a previous Tivo box was connected to.
I want to know if the second box can be self installed if I upgrade to Ultimate Oomph
I just seen this message today Gareth as I have not been too well.75 and you get all sorts of health problems, lol. Now, I have been searching high and low for the old box and for the life of me, I cannot find it.It has to be in the house somewhere, as I put it away with all the cables etc. I could not fit it in the box which was sent, on account of it been too small. I will search again tomorrow and please God I will find it. How on earth does one lose a box of stuff that size in a 3 bedroomed house. Fingers crossed I will find it soon. Jimmy L.
