(Maybe YouView might freshen things up though).

I don't mind losing the channels (as I was on XL) but I do miss the TiVo and it seems, in my case at least, once you've tried TiVo it's hard to accept anything else as substitute

Re: TiVo performance.

. . . but still no dynamic EPG on Tivo and no prospect of it coming for a long time.

That will come in due time but the TiVo as it stands is still head and shoulders above any other box in many peoples opinions.

Re: TiVo performance.

Not mine (after 6+ months use).

If the V+ had a larger hard drive, I would go back to that.

Here's one I made earlier. It gives a good indication of the TiVo speed when running the new 15.2 software.

Check out my video above. Granted it's the 1tb model but I think calling TiVo slow & useless is far from the truth. Don't get me wrong, I've recently had Sky installed and the 1tb Sky+HD box is noticeably quicker but that doesn't make the TiVo useless.
