Virgin 360 TV recording capacity

Hi,

Does anyone know the total recording capacity for Virgin 360TV with 2 Mini boxes? I understand the main box is the same as the current V6 box? Is that the same 1TB Hard Drive? Also do the mini's come without a Hard Drive, storing the content on the main box? This would mean I'd have 1/3 of the storage space?

Regards

The minis have no storage space so your correct, it's 1/3 of having 3 v6 boxes

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.

Are the mini boxes having any connection issues? I've previously had Sky Q which had issues streaming across boxes.

Many Thanks

Re: Virgin 360 TV recording capacity

Hi 

I've had virgin for month or two now. I'm really impressed with the virgin tv interface an the ability to watch recordings from the master box. Is there anyway to increase my hdd space. I don't mind paying for it but is it possible to get a bigger hdd because I record a lot and I'm already on 40 percent capacity.

Thanks

Re: Virgin 360 TV recording capacity

Hi.

As above. Are there any way in which HHD space can be increased? Or is it possible to have Virgin 360 with 3 Full/Main boxes instead of the Mini’s? I’ve not had my install yet but currently have 3 V6 boxes? I may try to stick with the V6

Thanks

Me too. I have 3 V6 boxes and when forced to upgrade I would like to keep my capacity and current recording abilities.

Re: Virgin 360 TV recording capacity

If you have the Arris V6 boxes it is possible to upgrade these from the TiVO to the Horizon platform & keep all the storage on the boxes. Upgrades like this are currently by invitation only.

Otherwise you will be given Humax boxes. These only run on Horizon, only have one master box & therefore are restricted to 1GB storage maximum. Horizon is designed for cloud storage, so this will likely be the next step rather than any increase in box capacity.

VM's mini boxes do not stream content from the main box like Sky's as each mini must be connected to a coaxial cable for broadcast TV.
