    So you can't find anything to complain about in this message? Bet that's annoying the hell out of you ;)

    No system messages for the best part of ten years, and we even questioned if it was possible - now It's almost a weekly mail!

    The way it is phrased does at least suggest they are aware not everyone can sign up for the new VM TiVo, which is (hopefully) promising.

    Some people are being sent a tivo remote with a web link to a web address for install. They are not paying a penny, free tivo, no install or activation fee and no monthly charge...

    ^ I was just thinking the exact same thing.

    Andy C, rhat's a really bad first attempt at Trolling. Perhaps you need some guidance. I can suggest a couple of names, if you like ;)

    I've just been over to cableforum and he is NOT trolling!

    It looks like a 1000 VIP's are getting tree Tivo and no monthly fee. The original poster also uploaded some photos of the letter he received. He didn't do a good job of disguising the unique url in the letter either (it's easy to guess it) so you can watch his video too :rolleyes:

    C'mon guys, I've been on the forums and am old enough to know better than to troll! There's a thread on CF called One of a thousand from guys who have received the remote in the post... they can then go online and book an install date. These are people on VIP50. They are getting the boxes free by all accounts, some quotes...

    ...and so on. Quite frankly VM are going to be making some customers happy, while the rest of us are getting fed up of the way this rollout is going.

    Time to email Mark Davidson. It's his name on the bottom of the letter.

    No problem. Have you tried putting your name in the url, instead of the OP to find out if you are on the list? I'm not :( but then I'm not VIP

    Well I am on VIP50 but all I can see of the URL is tivo.virg.... I've got a fair idea which I'll try, but feel free to PM the full URL. :)

    Cheers,

    If you find a name that works the video says they will never have to pay for their tivo service for life as a thank you. Can't say I'm happy about his the amount I pay them in service charges each month!
