    Has anyone had any joy using the 0845 number for this alternative EPG service since TIVO dumped us all? It started failing ages ago and I was advised to use the Manchester number instead; however, it becomes very expensive dialling this number. I did email the support people for the service but am getting no response.

    You can check how many people are using various numbers here

    As you can see for 0845 the number of callers is in single figures. From what I remember the 0845 number didn't fail every single time, but did fail 90%+ of the time so couldn't be relied upon.

    You can configure your tivo to use other numbers, although unless you have access to a bash prompt using a serial connection you will need to put the tivo drive into a PC to do it. The details are here

    You could substitute an ISP phone number, account, and password of your choice.

    There is a downside however as normal ISP access numbers don't have the 1 hour hangup by the server. If the tivo doesn't hang up you can quickly run up a very large phone bill.
