Are you talking about your credit card has expired that was getting charged the monthly fee for the Tivo? No idea what this card is you are talking about.

The bottom line is, if you want to use a Tivo you either have to pay the monthly fee for it, or buy lifetime service on the box, theres no way around that. Without the Tivo subscription the box will basically act like a tuner with no recording functions.

If you mean your credit card has expired then you need to go to the Tivo website and update your account with a new credit card to pay for the monthly fee.

You'll probably get more useful help if you ask in the VirginMedia forum http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...splay.php?f=69 where other UK users will actually understand and possibly have experience with the problem.
