Re: Please document any V6 issues here.

V6 doesn’t play back Netflix or New Store movies @ 23.976fps for movies does it, only 24fps?

Store movie trailers play back @ 60fps actually and stutter. TIVO doesn’t select the right frame rate.

The 24P setting in the Menu needs to play back @ 23.976fps.

Re: Please document any V6 issues here.

Don't bother with that old fashioned paper stuff Den, download this app Tv24.co.uk, it's the best one out there and lists every channel you can think of.

For Saturday onwards on BBC4, it says 'to be announced'. Maybe that's where VM get their information from!

Just noticed that, OB, that's strange as every other channel seems to be listed.

Same here though it is getting more challenging as they are trying to stop repeat £1 sub claimers.

This seems to be a regular occurrence. I posted on the community forum about it a week or so ago when the same thing happened & within an hour the listings had magically appeared. Coincidence or what?

Re: Please document any V6 issues here.

It's even worse when the same channel is listed as showing different things at the same time!

This sometimes happens when the local channel is simulcasting truTV or between SD and HD variants.

Re: Please document any V6 issues here. Transferring Recordings

I have just installed my V6 box and done a straight swap with my old TiVO box.

The documentation that came with V6 clearly states that I will be able to transfer my settings, Series Links and recordings between my old Tivo box and the new V6. This requires both boxes to be connected to the internet, which they are, both via Ethernet cables to my router which is connected to my SH3 in modem mode.

Virgin telephone support says this transfer is possible but posts on the Virgin Community say that engineers have told them it is impossible.

Does anyone have and experience with this please because despite many hours of trying, I can not get it to work?

Re: Please document any V6 issues here.

You can't transfer recordings, but if they're both active on your account and they're connected to the same Hub you can stream between the two

For other settings, you can copy them - see here: https://help.virginmedia.com/system/...box-to-another
