I currently have a V6 box and my contract is up next month. When i call to negotiate a new deal, I'm thinking seriously of moving to Virgin 360. Regarding the series link recording, does it record everything as in new and repeats or can i set it for new only same as the V6
Thanks in advance
You can set New only, depending on the series you might get different options when you select the Advanced options, as an example on 153 tonight Law and Order (possibly too many series), the options are From this episode onwards, All from series 9 only, All from series 9 and onwards, New episodes only and All available episodes.
You should do some further reading regarding the differences as once swapped over you can't revert back. I'm very happy with my 360, but each to their own.
On the 360 you go to Recordings > Recorded > View all
Select a saved program title eg Surreal > Click on the edit icon > Record > (options) All from series 1 only > All available episodes > New episodes only
If you check the following 360 FAQ page it should answer a lot of queries you may have.
(The above page actually needs updating as some of the menus/names have changed in firmware 4.42)

Afterwards, you can tap Home, go to Saved, then:
Hi again @Paulpal67
Have a look at some youtube videos showing the 360 in action.
Here's one from a user https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEKXTXLlphM&t=55s
Admittedly the videos almost 2 years old but it may give yuo an idea oon what to expect,
TV360 does handle series links very differently to TiVo/V6 as already explained. Some of the options are just done differently, others are not replicated.
TiVo-firmware does have more options to tweak SL's, but the "from this episode only" largely replicates "new only". Multi-channel links, options to set SL's when a programme isn't currently being broadcast, include VOD assets in the SL as well as recordings - that's the main options that spring to mind as not currently available in 360.
