    No reason for him to come back. He got the answer he was looking for in the first reply. The rest of the thread is just more typical BS between forum members once the question was answered.

    Nothing I said was in error.
    I never even remotely implied that tivos only had v1.3

    You didn't say just an older version you said that v1.3 specifically may have to be put back on the Tivo and that isn't correct.

    No it wasn't, for the reason I just gave and because any tivo still on that one version wouldn't need to be reverted at all when it could more easily be updated to v3.1

    Nobody said you intentionally gave mis-information but when you were told that what you said wasn't so, you did keep defending it despite it being wrong.

    What makes you think this with regard to manually setting automatic recordings with a Series 2 and above? I see nothing wrong with someone purchasing a used non-lifetime TiVo (at a garage sale for example) without paying for any type of TiVo service, never connecting it to a network, and using it to record if the software allows it. According to another user:

    If the software allows indefinite manual recording with no network connection, I see nothing wrong with using it this way.

    Absolutely. It it's enabled by the Tivo software then there's no theft of service or breach of any agreements.

    Just to be nitpicky, if you don't have a subscription on your TiVo, I don't think you have any sort of agreement with TiVo to violate.

    There may be a way to violate the licensing terms of the TiVo software, but that's not exactly the same thing.
