    Hi all,

    I'm currently running a S1 TiVo. Some time ago I got a call from Virgin with an offer to upgrade to the new VM TiVo box, I think it had free instalation and Activation. At the time I didn't know what I wanted to do and I asked the chap to give me some time and call me back in a week or so, needless to say he didn't, and like a numpty I lost his phone number. I tried phoning customer service, and they denied all knowledge, I tried emailing about a half dozen times via the contact form, but no reply.

    So as a last resort I thought I would ask on here to see if anyone has any ideas who was running this offer and if it is still available. I must admit I'm really irritated by this, almost enough to go back to Sky :) I'm just off the phone with the customer services who told me I didn't have TiVo, that I meant that I had a V+ box (which I don't) but I didn't have TiVo, also went onto say that I never had any offers from VM for TiVo because it was only select customers that got an offer (obviously I'm not 'select') :(

    Anyway, thanks for any help you can offer.

    Many Thanks

    Thanks Carl,

    Do you know when it ended? I'm really annoyed by this :mad: I may have to crush a grape. I guess it's probably my fault as well, I should have come here as soon as I hit the great wall of ignorance at Virgin Media Customer Support, rather than trying to keep emailing them.

    Thanks

    Jim

    I wouldn't worry about it - it wasn't an amazing deal as it turns out - the same as available at launch in fact: £149

    We just got it a few months earlier than many.
    Personally I'm pleased with that, others less so.

    Now you can get the 500GB version for £49, and without having to pay out for XL package too.
