Virgin turns on third Tivo tuner

One box, three pick-ups

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Virgin Media has begun pushing out an firmware update that will activate the third tuner built into its new, Tivo-branded set-top box.

Most DVRs have two tuners, allowing you to record one channel while watching another. Virgin's box will now let you record three shows at once - assuming, of course, you can find something worth taping - or watch a programme while saving two others to view later.

The box has a 1TB hard drive for show storage.

Virgin promised further updates are in the pipeline. They will bring "more apps, games and services", it said. ®
