360 box shared pause

Hi , I've just upgraded my two v6 boxes to 360 software and very pleased  - not perfect but a good improvement.

Only problem is a multiroom question - if i want to carry on watching a ( live) program in another room it says to press record then carry on watching in the other room  - only problem is when I go on 'save' and press the recording in the second room the only options are watch live or watch from the beginning ( PS the virgin help says to choose the other box from the menu and watch from there  - well that's the instructions for the v6 box with the old software!)

Re: 360 box shared pause

If you want to watch a live programme in another room, you just choose whichever channel the programme is on, and watch it live?

Or are you talking about pausing a recording in one room, and resuming that recording on another box?

Re: 360 box shared pause

Hi, what I want to do is pause live tv on box 1, make a cup of tea or whatever then carry on watching from that point on my second box

Re: 360 box shared pause

Hi, that is the link I was talking about - it says to go to ‘my shows’ - that is the old v6 software- it doesn’t have ‘my shows ‘ on the 360 software it has ‘saved’

Re: 360 box shared pause

Hi again George,

I just noticed that. Further to my previous post. I couldn't find My Shows, but fingers crossed the following method should work.

To watch a paused program - On the main box press Record 


On the other box (probably a mini box )  press Home > Saved > Continue Watching  and scroll down to the end and you’ll see the name(s) of 360 boxes you have connected.

Select the other box (probably a mini box) and  press OK  then choose the show you want to watch and press OK

Re: 360 box shared pause

Hi again , there’s nothing there ( I think choosing the other box is a v6 thing again) if you press record it saves on save- recording and as I said the only options are watch from the beginning or watch live

thanks for your help with this , I’ve had 2 v6 boxes for years and this just seems weird!

Re: 360 box shared pause

From the OPs initial post they have upgraded two V6 boxes. As all recordings are shown in one list on V360, all they need to do is find the recording on the list & resume it.
