V6 update

Hi.

My V6 TiVo switched its self on yesterday morning 18/2/2020 at 6am. Had it received a software or platform update?🤔 I've seen rumours that virgin are rolling out something called horizon to their boxes. Is it something to do with that?🤔  I've been told that virgin send updates to their boxes every 4-6 weeks. Is this correct?

Re: V6 update

They send updates as and when they need to, there is no set time. Technically they update tv guide data every night

Re: V6 update

Nope. Nothing to do with Horizon, which is a total rebuild.

The main noticeable change with this update is a quick key (yellow) to access a +1 version of a channel. This was available with the previous update, but was hidden from the channel banner.

Virgin Media UK don’t use Horizon. They use the TiVO platform. The V6 is Horizon “ready”, & Virgins parent company (Liberty Global) have released the V6 to several of its European operations with the Horizon 4 platform already.
As I stated, the Horizon 4 platform is a totally new UI. This introduces a voice control remote & cloud storage of recordings (the European V6 has no internal storage).
