Just joined the forum and am awaiting my remote before upgrading. Have tried reading some of the post and replies and I am confused.

Is it worth upgrading and if I do nothing after receiving the remote do I stay on Tivo?

What is the loss of full Series Link + functionality mentioned in my welcome e-mail?

I use SL on Tivo and thus do not miss the programmes I want - will I lose this function by upgrading?

Re: TV360

The choice of whether to convert to 360 is yours alone, but if you've requested the remote then the process has started and there's no going back. A few days after receiving the remote, an "upgrade now" icon will appear on your V6 menu - after a certain period, the conversion will usually commence automatically. All your current series links and recordings will be lost when your box is converted.

360 has a series link functionality, with some caveats...

1: Series links are for single channels only, so you can't set an SL for "all channels" as you can with TiVo/V6

2: Series links can only be set for programmes that are due to broadcast in the next fortnight and thus listed in your programme guide. TiVo/V6 lets you set a SL for any programme you can find an OnDemand listing for.
