    The Gadget Show's "Web TV" take their first look at the Virgin TiVo.
    (Thought I'd post this to see what you guys, who own the box, think)

    Not bad for a short review, they missed out loads but hopefully Tivo will get a full review once Gadget Show is back on TV.

    Unlikely - not if they can fill what used to be a great and informative show with yet another highly suspect runaround. I don't think they even gave the iPad2 a proper review, at least not on the actual show.

    I also don't think it will be mentioned on the show - because it's not made by Sky or Apple.

    Quite a positive review overall.
    Mentions Suggestions, Discovery / Explore Show, 3 live TV buffer / tuner, YouTube app, dedicated 10 Mbps connection for on-demand -- All being things that Sky doesn't offer.
    Sure, he does say a few negatives towards the end but also returns to say how much it has improved.
    I think it has good potential to win over Sky customers, for those that actually see it of course.

    Yeah, because those are the only two brands they ever have on the programme :rolleyes: Some people don't half post a load of provably incorrect nonsense sometimes :(

    I don't really like The Gadget Show anymore to be honest, I went to TGS Live, but the show seems to have this cycle where you watch it, and you're really into it, then you start fast forwarding parts of it, then you stop watching it at all. This seems to happen to me every 6 months. So, in 6 months, I'll probably be saying "I love The Gadget Show!".

    It's fine for a 'mass-market' show that needs viewers to survive. Of course, we'd prefer something like .tv but it;s just not going to happen.

    Oh, and by the way, did anyone else laugh when they saw 'Click' as a suggestion?

    Hey! Not my fault. You can't tell stuff like that when it's just written out! Besides, I know of posts on the DS forum when they are serious. :)

    Erm, I think you've posted in the wrong thread.

    The post above mine - I think you meant to post it in the BBC and F1 thread. It looks a little out of place here.

    If it was a reply to me, all I was saying is that because they're both technology shows, it's funny to see 'Click' on The Gadget Show's suggestions.

    I have to remind myself it's entertainment and not take it seriously sometimes.. just like Top Gear probably really annoys car fanatics. Anyone making a buying decision based entirely on a TGS review would need their head examining...

    Ahh. Sorry. Just realised I missed a post and didn't quote. This is how the conversation went.
