Big updates coming? User interface is ... well, dated

Hi there

I've been on the V6 for a few years now.  I got one of the first in the first couple of months they were released, so I've had it a long time.

The interface is well ... I think I'd call it functional, to be polite.  I've got a big TV, but I assume a high percentage over the years have moved from smaller to larger TVs - and average screen size is increasing.  However, the interface resolution is still really low and font sizes are huge.  The Guide fits on about 10-12 channels at a time ... but if I look at everything else I've got - Netflix, Amazon Prime, Apple TV, Plex, and more ... their interfaces have stayed more with the times.

Does anyone know if the V6 interface is due a big update?  If there's higher resolution versions coming, or if there's going to be tweaks to make more of the screen real estate?

There will be little if any significant change to the current TiVo software interface.

At some stage, there will be a change to the Horizon 4 platform, currently available in some other European Liberty Global companies.

Hey Ernie ...

Thanks for the reply. OK, cool. Do you know if there's an ETA for that?

It was due to be sometime this year but I would think plans have been put back due to the current crisis.
