My understanding is the two will converge with LGI continuing to licence elements of Tivo's software. They do not want to throw the baby out with the dishwater. By then, I doubt that the Horizon brand will be so prominent so it will just seem to all customers like a software upgrade rather than a totally new operating system. Time will tell.

There was a Daily Telegraph article on this last year.

Extract:

... there will be a major overhaul of the ageing plumbing that powers Virgin Media’s broadcasting, to allow it to shift to Liberty Global’s next generation distribution system, Horizon, which is already in use elsewhere in Europe.

That refers to the brand name. As the article makes clear further on, the Horizon platform is the future for VM rather than Tivo.
