There's actually another feature you lose in the 'upgrade'. Virgin advertise what you get with 360 but not what you lose.
Previously, when setting a Series Link, you could ask for the box to only record starting from a particular series (or new series only). That option is now gone. Unless it's hidden somewhere in the new mix and I'm missing it???
My 360 is now recording episodes from several series that I've already seen. If I go to delete future/planned recordings, cuz I've already seen them, the 360 box only gives me the option to delete the entire Series Link. So, now, DAILY, I'm just waiting for several different series links to record episodes that I've already seen... so that I can delete them one by one. Ridic.
360 might LOOK better, but so far, for me... it's not an UPGRADE in functionality, it's a downgrade. And I had to pay £25 for it too!!! 😡
At present there is no New Only option. The 360 will record all new shows from the season that you start your recordings from. Unfortunately, it will also record repeats of shows that you have watched then deleted. This is a bug that will be fixed in a future update..
The series link starts from the season you set it too ie if there are 8 seasons and you set the 1st recording at season 4 it will record seasons 4 to 8.
Long winded version of how I've just gone through the motions to set up a series link for The Big Bang Theory
I scrolled to the program on Channel 106 - clicked on Info using the contextual button on the remote (the three dots) - you can also just click on the voice button on your remote and say "info" - which showed the program was series 2 episode 10 - I didn't want to record old series/episodes.
Instead I clicked the episodes option, and scrolled to series 12 which is available on 4HD and 4+1 - pressed OK and then Record on episode 1
Scrolled down and clicked on Advanced options - at the top of the screen is the option Record - All from series 12 and onwards >
Selecting that option gives 4 further options -
This episode only: All from Series 12 only : All from series 12 and onwards : All available episodes.

thanks for the reply, but that is a poor excuse. You never had to delete items ‘multiple times’ on TiVo. Deleted items would be automatically removed when storage was needed, but if you deleted something by mistake, you could always restore it.
This is a table stakes feature, and disappointing this still hasn’t been implemented after it was flagged when I joined the trial nearly 10 months ago.
it’s also been stated that the Horizon platform allows for quicker development than you had with TiVo, again this doesn’t appear to be the case….
