Yes i am thinking the old Tivo is no longer produced or supplied so any box swap has to be the V6 , as i understand there is a new 360 Tivo on course for distribution ? Not sure what the extras are to the V6 but imagine there's an upgrade to something otherwise they wouldn't be bringing it out ?
The TiVo is still supplied and new TV-only customers are still being fitted with them.
Both TiVo & V6 run on the TiVo-licenced software platform, the V360 runs on the new Horizon (in very simple terms, Virgin in-house) software platform. At the moment they are entirely different setups, and there is much functionality on TiVo/V6 that V360 doesn't currently have. Equally there is some new functionality on the V360 that TiVo/V6 doesn't.
In time, Horizon will replace the TiVo platform - but we're quite a way from that yet.
