    S1 was £399 when launched + had the £200 "lifetime" option which for early adopters worked out at ~ £1.60pm over the 10-ish years.

    Anyway, doesn't affect the fact that new TiVo is a pretty good deal (and arguably cheaper than original S1) if you already were a VM TV-XL subscriber ... and as that covered me I'm very happy with it.

    But you have to pay them should you break it or have it stolen.

    Why (and how) would I break it, and why would I have to pay for it if it's stolen; unless it was through my negligence, in which case I would deserve it!

    You can break it in a manner of different ways; spilling liquid on it, a power surge, not keeping it well ventilated. It's one of the T&Cs you have to pay for a box if it is stolen.

    Okay. The "how" was a stupid question, but if it was accidental then I would assume any existing household insurance would cover it.

    Never broken a box so can't say if they would ever charge, even for accident.

    Really? Must say I haven't read the T&Cs for a while :) That's an odd one though.

    Well, of course, it's not Virgin Media's fault that your box has been stolen so it is your responsibility for the replacement cost.

    This can either be your personal responsibility if you have not insured the box or that of your insurance company if your policy covers this. A crime reference number will be required by your insurance company.

    Fair enough I suppose.
