    As already mentioned in this thread, we got it at a discount and before general release.

    I didn't! I've not got mine installed yet!

    (Yeah, I know, but I was away, and then my wife had loads of films on the V+ box to watch...).

    Ordered last week, got screwed over at the weekend :-(

    Sorted now (allegedly, won't be sure till I see a bill - I've been promised things from VM before!)

    Just checked and yes its showing on my account now, not a bad outcome really to say I have had Tivo since April. I wouldn't ever want to go back to a normal box now either

    Well that's your opinion, luckily for me Virgin have sided with me after all they did say I could have a Tivo for cheaper than what joe public would get when its was released to the masses then low and behold a price cut when the general release came.

    I have simply got back what I'm entitled to, I must also add that at no point did I ask for my money back, I presented the facts in an email, it was Virgin who decided to credit my account

    Which you did.

    Actually, the "general release" was back in April; or possibly May. I'm not 100% certain which.

    I disagree. You've actually got more. Which is a little un-fair on all the others who were offered the same deal; no?

    You can break it down as much as you want, but the end of the day its a win for the consumer, they could have said no but they didn't, I'm on an 18 month contact so they wouldn't have lost anything saying no.

    That's my final words on the subject as I see plenty other people getting the same credit as me

    Well done to you. You don't need to justify yourself though. At least you paid for yours in the first place unlike those who like accusing people of taking the piss, regardless of how "rolly eyed" they think they are being.

    He is taking the p!ss. As is everyone else angling for a similar refund.

    The fact that I (and many others, actually) did not pay for mine does not change my attititude. I would certainly not be looking for any sort of a refund. I would not even have considered contacting VM about it.

    Quite likely but personally wouldn't wait that long to save 150 quid.

    It does say "all" customers, so I'm guessing so.

    Well done Virgin for seeing sense and ensuring everyone that bought Tivo at the higher price get a credit automatically. Looks like enough people complained to make a difference for all
