    Channel 554 is now up with details on how you can watch the upcoming live PPV event on TiVo.

    However, as I type the displayed page (http://virginmedia.com/TiVoLiveEvents) is not yet up - but you can call 0800 519 6920 to book the event too.

    Once booked you'll be able to watch the event live (and repeats) on 555.

    Glad I don't like boxing. This whole thing seems to have been a massive drama :)

    I have never watched any PPV event but I can certainly see how not having the same ability to order them via the box is a major issue with the Tivo.

    Funnily enough all of the current "major issues" with the Tivo aren't an issue for me, I don't do PPV, I don't like tennis so I don't need the red button, the padding issue isn't a problem I rather like being able to use different padding for different channels, 1 min ether side is more than enough for most satellite channels but I give the beeb 3 mins, I have never used reminders as I record everything I want to watch and view it later so I can FF through the adverts.

    I'm not saying these shouldn't be addressed but from a personal point of view it doesn't bother me.

    I generally agree with you. I consider myself lucky that none of those bother me either.

    My biggest problems surround the UI being a little slow and me wanting a nice shiny iPad/Android app to play with.

    I booked this yesterday via the internet for the Tivo, a painless quick way, email reply telling me to check on channel 555 and all was well:D
