that will be a 8:00 to 12:00 slot. the tech should 'phone when he/she on their way.
Mine is here now
It's finishing downloading info - which I hope cures the bug I may have found....going "left" in the EPG when there is no data causes it to just loop the last program in the EPG over and over
I shall play more after I'm back from work - I have to go now.... :\
I believe the V+ remote does not have a pause key. It only has a play/pause toggle key.
Have a look at this
I'm looking at a 3D one in my hands. That has play AND pause buttons. The V+ has a single play/pause button, according to the Slingplayer virtual remote.
The basic functions on the v+ remote operate your TiVo box as well.
I can't get the V+ pause button to work on my VM Tivo. But the virtual Slingplayer V+ remote may work slightly differently.
I've got that too since my install 2 days ago. No data before Tuesday morning first thing, just one long repeating program entry - weird.
Hope it get's fixed soon.
Digital Fanatic was right, of course. I got a phone call at 1140 and two engineers/techicians arrived just before 12. It was only the second TiVo they had installed, apparently. They did a very neat cabling job and had no misgivings about using a 25mm PVC tube I'd had laid some 10 years ago beneath the front garden paving to route part of it. They'd learned enough to get the box powered up and linked to the cable ASAP so as to get its s/ware and data downloads, using the time saved to neaten up and finish off cable fixing. They were gone by 1400.
It's all working fine, so far, but I must get used to avoiding pressing the "My Shows" button where a "Mute" used to be! This time I obviously have to give a
Yep, that's one of the one's that don't work it just works the "play" command.
OK, thanks for confirming. Thought ineptitude was getting the better of me..
I have officially joined the VM TiVo ranks, the engineer left about half an hour ago. This was the 11th he'd installed, I'm in NW London. Looking forward to having a play with my new/old toy!
Well done Hornet!
Enjoy and please keep us posted with your experiences!
Had mine installed early this morning. It was the first Tivo box the engineers had seen, they'd not even had any training on them yet.
Now finding all the bugs with it.
Mine's being installed on Tuesday. I've ordered a shiny new plasma telly to celebrate the occasion - it's time I dragged my viewing out of the 20thCentury.
I too am having mine installed on Tuesday, AM appointment. I am reading through all the posts about people's experiences and hope that I can add to the discussion when I am all Tivo'd up!
They have allowed me to keep my V+ and VHD boxes. The VHD box they are installing in another room for us. Excellent service. I'll be interested to find out from the engineer if I'm the first in my area (near Gatwick Airport).
Are they charging you extra to allow you to keep the existing boxes and are they charging you for the installation in another room?
I had my Tivo fitted in last Wednesday. Got my old SA V+ box moved and wired in to my Kitchen at the other end of the house. Just paid the £149.00 for the Tivo £3 subs and the £6.50 for additional box. No installation charges at all.
All along the engineer was under the impression I was Virgin staff until at the end he asked me what I did at Virgin. He had no idea that customers were getting it yet.
Well I've had mine for 3 days now & it's lovely having TiVo back
We got off to a bit of a shaky start with Virgin not turning up when they were supposed to but we got there in the end.
Having swapped over from Sky HD, it's lovely to have a decent EPG again but I have to admit the Sky HD picture quality was definitely better. Any other ex Sky HD users noticed the same ?
I was looking forward to using Season Passes instead of Sky's Series Links only to find they're called the same now .... booo! But the wish lists more than make up for any of that
All in all very happy to have TiVo back in the family
To be honest we think it's the opposite, HD on Virgin to us looks better than Sky? Even the SD pictures look better?
Maybe check and make sure Tivo is outputting 1080i?
