Re: Upgrade V6 to 360 Questions

Hi All I upgraded my TV package yesterday and can confirm there is NO quick play which is rubbish Virgin you really need to bring this back as said by others its great for skipping shows that have alot of filler footage in them like the police shows that reuse footage over and over incase you forgot what happened during the commercial breaks.

Re: Upgrade V6 to 360 Questions

Hi @basicchipmunk 

Whilst quickview/quickplay isn't available, you can do the following.

To skip forwards/backwards 15 minutes in recordings - press MIC and say "go forward 15 minutes" or "go back 15 minutes". You can also say "fast forward 10 minutes" or whatever amount of time you want. To avoid adverts on streamed & on demand say "skip forward three minutes" or "fast forward 3 minutes"

The left and right arrow buttons either side of the OK button skip forward 30 seconds and back 10 seconds.

If you press the fast forward button above the '3' key, you have 4 speeds depending on how many times you press the button, when fast forwarding you can press the TV button to turn off the graphics, you can then press the play button to start watching.

When fast forwarding press TV button and that will switch off the fast forward arrows etc. For Stop press the back button or pause button, TV button also stops and puts you back to TV.

As a side note you can play back in slow motion by pressing pause then Fast Forward

Re: Upgrade V6 to 360 Questions

You really don't get the point of quick view clearly. It was an amazing feature that I truly miss. To watch a grand Prix recorded 30% faster without missing a second of the sound or action was simply brilliant.

Re: Upgrade V6 to 360 Questions

I agree fast forwarding is not the same as quick view!!!!

The 360 service is a V6 box so its the same hardware just upgraded software surely there must be a way to enable the function again in the settings/code?? 

It really is a great feature to have!

I feel a campaign coming on #bringbackquickview

Re: Upgrade V6 to 360 Questions

As has been said many times before, the software on V6 (TiVo) and that on TV 360 (Horizon) are completely different.

A setting on Horizon to simple enable Quickview is not going to happen as the code is simply not there.

It could be implemented in Horizon, assuming TiVo permitted use of their proprietary function, but I don’t see this happening. It’s a niche function. I doubt very few even knew it existed in TiVo software.

Re: Upgrade V6 to 360 Questions

Totally understand that it's a different company's software and it is a niche TiVo function. However, it is still less functionality because other than voice control the 360 really adds nothing. The whole recording experience is a downgrade from being able to record anything where a name or team was mentioned to being able to add a series link for a program not yet in the guide. Then of course the ability to watch everything that bit faster. 

ONce upon a time VCRs had a feature called video+ it would record for the length that the code was broadcast and if a show overran you would still get the end (As long as you didn't run out of tape of course) I am surprised in this day and age where we have so much live sport and especially F1 where red flags can delay the race for hours sometimes that the system cannot automatically track the broadcast.

I don't rate 360, I had to have it as part of my renewal and as a technical person I am normally very eager to try a new thing but I am yet to meet anyone that feels they have an upgraded experience.

Will virgin add quick view feature to 360?

I used to love the quick view function on my 360 software. I was gutted when I lost the feature on my upgrade to 360. Will virgin be adding this feature back?

Re: Will virgin add quick view feature to 360?

The honest answer is - no-one knows for certain except for the developers, and they tend to keep the roadmap pretty discrete.

Some of the differences with how TV360 do things are because of TiVo-patented features that TV360 may have to just do differently. Others can perhaps be added in time.

Fundamentally TV360 is not TiVo - it is different.

The hardware is irrelevant here, when you converted 2 x V6 to 360, they stopped being  V6.

They are now 360, whether they were installed as 360 or were previously V6 is Immaterial.

It's like converting a Windows 10 laptop to Windows 11 and complaining about lost functionality "because it's the same laptop"
