downgrade to tivo or v6

Hello

I have changed to 360 box would love to get a TiVo box or v6 instead.  as I don't like the new system at all.  I would even settle for an old cisco tivo box at this stage.

They might change it, they might not.

If they do, enjoy it while it lasts.

Re: downgrade to tivo or v6

I tried this earlier this year and the answer was no.

The TiVo platform is being phased out and eventually all V6 boxes will be updated to the 360 software and older TiVo boxes are now being taken out of operation.

Old TiVo 500 boxes are being reserved for TV only customers and I think they will eventually be also be added to a stop sale list.



If I've helped let me know 🙂

Re: downgrade to tivo or v6

I guess i'm getting rid of the TV then as it offers less than a cheap freeview play box, no 4od app for example.

Yeah I took up a nice offer with Sky Q that blew Virgin's deal and obviously the boxes features and performance out the water.
