What should I expect tv360

Hi, new here, I have been with VM just a year, I have just got my email saying my 360 quick self set-up will arrive on Tuesday 01/12, I just have a couple of queries as in what should I expect in the box, I have a TiVo v6 box at the moment so am assuming it will just be the remote, and also do I do the install myself and not vm as I want to make sure I have watched all recordings that I need to watch first.   Also I very nearly went back to sky on my renewal a couple days ago, but was offered a deal sky couldn’t quite match and then I receive an email stating a new voice remote was available now that is something I certainly miss from sky, also the HDMI-CEC does the new software support this.

 

regards 
MARK

Re: What should I expect tv360

Hello

Yes you will only receive the remote

When you receive the remotes there is a new app on the v6 that will do the update, please note that when you start the update it has to wipe the box so everything will be gone, series links, recordings, wishlist's etc, and there is no way of transferring them.

Now with the new v360 software it will use HDMI-CEC as it automatically picks up the TV and programs the v360 remote to able to control the TV from the virgin remote.

Regards Mike

Re: What should I expect tv360

That’s great thanks.   I assume the voice remote can change the channel via voice too.   Will the app appear in my apps section soon as all that’s there at the minute is the usual apps, store and one for upgrade tv which I don’t think is anything to do with 360.

Re: What should I expect tv360

The app should be there the day the remotes arrive, might be the day before. 

you don’t need to do anything till they get there

Re: What should I expect tv360

Also think read somewhere there is a new app for watching on iPad.  Is this correct and if so is it available.

Re: What should I expect tv360

The app used with the 360 is the TV Go app.

But what is extra for 360 customers are the functions that are in the separate TV Control app for TiVo and V6 boxes.

Everything is done now with TV 360 on the Virgin TV Go app.

Re: What should I expect tv360

I already utilise the tv go and the tv control apps for watching and setting recordings and manage series links etc, so I will just carry on using those as I do now with my v6 box..

Re: What should I expect tv360

No, you only use the Virgin TV Go app with TV 360. The Virgin TV Control app is not used.
