eBay 360 remote

Hi I'm thinking of upgrading to 360 and I already have the v6 box so only need a remote.

I have seen them brand new for sale on eBay.

Question is can I just buy one from eBay instead of Virgin media and set it up myself or does buying one from Virgin activate something the eBay one will not.

Regards Gazz

No, you need to have the new service from VM to move to the new software

Re: eBay 360 remote

Hi Gazz,

Have you tried the 360 upgrade link on the following page?  

https://www.virginmedia.com/tv/virgin-tv-360/upgrade 

You could also phone in and maybe try and negotiate a new contract at trhe same time as switching to the 360.

One point to remember, it's completely different to the TIVO and V6 and hasn't got all the features. If yuo do switch to the 360 and don't like it you can't go back to the TIVO or V6.

The following link compares some of the boxes features /360-Features-v-TIVO-Features 

And this page has more info (FAQ's) on the 360 https://www.virginmedia.com/help/virgin-tv-360
