    I have been using the BuddyTV Guide smartphone app for a couple of days. It works with my unsubscribed Premiere with the Premiere connected to the LAN. It lacks some of the functionality of using the app with a subscribed TiVo, but it works well as a remote to change the channel by tapping on a show.

    So what good is an unsubscribed Premiere other than to use as a set top box? If it doesn't have the original SW (14.x) it won't even buffer live TV.

    It is not nearly as good as a subscribed Premiere, but it saves me a significant amount of money:). And, with older software versions setup like mine, it can do a little bit more than function as a tuner.
