    Hi there
    I was trying to get my dad onto tivo, as he is already on virgin. But am I right in saying that it needs an internet connection to work properly, like the old tivo? He has not got internet, I keep telling him to get it but says it cost to much. The basic package does seem pretty good deal :up:. I would defiantly get one if I had virgin round my way.:D
    thanks :)

    It has it's own connection. You don't need separate internet access.

    No, you only need to subscribe to their tv package.

    Although the box can do some internet functions (YouTube/iplayer)
    that's all done inside the box on its own connection which it splits from the single standard cable tv coax lead going in.
