    577, hopefully my UK Beta TiVo keeps working until I work out if I can get a Virgin Media box to replace it.

    Oh and my parents have two TiVos and my sister has another. I can't imagine any of them would post on here but if they count then that's up to 579.

    590 - Since Sep 2001. Have considered alternatives many times, but my teenage daughter has grown up with TiVo and is very emotionally attached to it. When I've talked about possibly retiring and replacing it, she reacted like we were getting rid of our much loved dog.

    She was suspicious of the VM news until she was reassured that TiVo buddy would appear on the box. Mr Branson, please note my daughter will not give me approval to buy it unless TiVo buddy comes down the slide when it boots up. As a concession, we will allow you to replace the "as recommended by Sky" message :eek:

    592 - though since my LNB stopped working (terrestrial signal is dreadful where I am) I can't actually add anything new to the TiVo until I go up a ladder.

    Mind you, with the size of the drive I've got fitted, there's still a load of stuff to watch :)

    595 - although, Sky box appeared to die last night :-(

    So, do I get another sky box from somewhere, or give in and buy into virgins V+ box and hopefully upgrade to the VM TiVo whenever it arrives?...

    How bad is the V+ box? I know the old TVdrives were *painfully* slow - is this still the case with the V+?

    V+ is the TVdrive unit with different plastic front.

    Ha! I did wonder.

    So, is it painfully slow? Is it going to drive me mad after a TiVo/Sky combo?

    Is the new V+ any better (and if so, is there anyway I can make sure I get one!)

    Yes its slow, but just about usable.

    Only season passes though, no wishlists/suggestions, nor even a search for titles - there is an a-z to scroll though...

    It's basically a normal STB with record facility added on.

    The new "tivo V+" doesn't really exist just yet.. its still in early development stages. Wait til next year.

    596 lifetime sub, running along side a sky hd box, TiVo has it's own sky box and multiroom sub. Getting real tired of sky+ missing and clashing programs now. Did not realise how backwards sky+ was until I got a HD box. Would love a HD TiVo for sky (not in virgin area)

    Long time since I was on here. Still using mine at the moment, changed over from a sky box with expired free viewing card to a cheap Goodmans freesat box last night. Am intending at some point to replace it with a Humax HDR but will need to wait until I get a job! :-(

    Have had good service out of the tivo box but my brother has a Humax and I'd like to move to one of those really.
