The problem you are up against is that VM is now owned by a far bigger fish in the cable market. Liberty Global owns many cable operations in Europe & has developed & is now operating Horizon as the only TV platform in these countries.
As a result we are in a transition phase between TiVO, whose agreement will end in the foreseeable future, & the parent companies system.
The latest Humax TV boxes will only run on Horizon. The Arris units running TiVO can for the most part run both, although some are failing in conversion. There is no facility to replace Horizon on these boxes, so they would have to be replaced, probably with refurbed Arris units. However, this is not company policy. Also the value of TiVO is going down as new apps are only being developed for Horizon.
