    I want to check that I have been given a 1tb TiVo on installation but I cannot see anything on the box nor anything in system settings. How can I check I have been given the box I paid for?
    Many thanks.

    Check the number of hours recording available in System Info (under help/settings) If it's around 500 hours SD then you have the larger Tivo.

    it's not unknown for 500gb boxes to be installed "in error" - get on this quick before you end up losing your recordings when they come to swap it out for the, i assume, correct 1gb box.

    Different compression mechanism, once VM gets rid of their non TiVo boxes they'll be able to squeeze more in.
