I wouldn't be surprised if virgin media decide to keep tivo permanently. As its good reliable system. I do actually like and use tivos wishlists very heavily for planning recordings from actors & directors in advance 🙂. I would hate to lose the wishlists 🙁. I would like to see tivo stay for good. My attitude is if it isn't broke don't replace it 🙂. I just heard rumours about horizon 4 rdk. I did query horizon 4 rdk with virgins text support team. Apparently theirs no plans for horizon 4 rdk.
I'm under the impression that virgin media's horizon firmware will be loaded onto our existing v6 tivos 🤔 their tv tech support team advised me that our v6 tivos will be receiving an update on 3rd September. The guy I spoke to. Asked his supervisor. Who advised him 3rd September. I don't think it would be cost effective for virgin media to pull all their v6 tivos out of service. It would make sense to load the horizon firmware onto their existing v6 tivos 🙂.
Thank you for letting me know 🙂. So are the existing v6 boxes keeping tivo for their firmware? 🤔 I doubt I will take virgin up on a new box. I'm happy with my current v6. It's got lots of recorded movies saved on its hard drive. Also I can't be bothered having to fath around putting my wishlists into a new box and watching recordings from scratch. Hopefully virgin will roll out horizon onto their existing v6 boxes 🤔. It seems a waste of money sending out new boxes. When their existing v6 boxes are capable of running horizon 4 rdk 🙂.
To be honest it would make sense for virgin to keep tivos software & firmware on their v6 boxes. I'm quite happy with the tivo operating system. It does what I want. I'm happy with the wishlists & series links and 1TB hard drive it plenty for me and does what I need. I have a lot of movies recorded that I haven't watched yet. I wouldn't wanna lose them 🙁. Hopefully virgin will keep their tivo operating system for many years to come 🙂.
One of my V6 boxes has just received new firmware 21.10.1.RC21. The other one hasn't 🤔 Is their a reason why one has only received the update? Also what has the update brought to the box? I can't see any difference 🤔
