Virgin unlock third tuner on TiVo set-top boxes

Virgin have released an upgrade to their new Virgin Media with TiVo set-top box, unlocking a third tuner for recording purposes.

A third tuner means users can record two programs at once, while still watching another live show. Alternatively, you could record three live programs at once while watching a pre-recorded item or something from the on-demand service. Most PVRs (Personal Video Recorders) contain two tuners, so Virgin’s TiVo box is set to become one of the best TV recorders around.

Virgin announced their next-generation entertainment service, Virgin Media powered by TiVo, at the end of last year, which gives users access to a huge amount of on-demand content such as TV shows, Movies and web-based applications. Unlike other Cable services and set-top boxes, Virgin Media powered by TiVo runs on Virgin’s super fast digital network, meaning no delay in the delivery of your chosen content.
