The only tangible advantage to Viiv is that there were some special pieces of content available on Comcast, I think. Basically, no advantage. It's just a specification of parts like Centrino(tm).

Agreed on viiv assesment, more marketing than value.

As for the paintball gun, I recommend you just play, dont get caught up in the upgrade hype. I.e. barrels are the biggest waste of $, the reality of differing barrels is that some actually do help you shoot better, with a certain batch of paint, on a certain day because the humidity and temp is different, etc. is it measurable? Sure. Statistically significant? Possibly. Do you want to carry around 20 barrels for all different conditions?
