Virgin Media has released the first official TiVo screenshots, showing off the slick looking graphical interface of the new system.

As you can see, the traditional Virgin Media colours are still on board, but it doesn't look a whole lot different to the TiVo system in the States.

As you'd expect there are series link options, as well as details for all the shows on the EPG and there's also an interesting App & Games area.

We know that Virgin Media's TiVo powred HD/3D box will have 1TB of space and will be capable of storing up to 500 hours of content.

A 2010 launch is planned so, although we don't have any official dates yet, it won't be long as there are only 5 weeks left of the year.

We'll keep you posted.
