    The page sometimes loads and sometimes does not - a forum fault I think.

    Copy the link out and it works everytime.

    2Tb disk and 4 tuners. Neither are concerns for me. The hardware is fine. They need to get the software sorted out. Fix the bugs before adding new features.

    Yes, the current hardware is fine. For the US stepping from two tuners to four is a big help, but three to four not so much. 1TB is just fine IMO. I also think the current software only uses one of the two cores in the Virgin TiVo. If they unlock the 2nd along with all the software fixes/upgrades planned we will be sorted.

    Plus they should implement disk-caching as that would speed things up dramatically.

    The current version of flash the Tivo uses can only access one core, so we need a flash upgrade

    2TB: check ;)
    4 Tuners: I'm OK with 3

    Overall: Meh

    Exactly the same hardware spec. though. Might even be the same design.

    I would love 4 tuners! The amount of times I've have to run downstairs because someone's complaining the "Switch tuner" screen has come up when three shows are recording at once (a common occurrence).
