    There could well be a changeover period to ensure no loss of data, where two feeds are in place.

    But there might be only one feed from TMS that is then processed in Alviso to provided two different feeds for UK Tivo customers.

    There might only be one feed from TiVo. TiVo could have designed the feed for S4s to be backwards compatible with S1s; indeed there's a large incentive for them to do so. While I doubt there is only one server, the processing of the Tribune data may only be done once.

    The US and UK (old) data are certainly on separate servers, or at least on separate IP addresses.

    There might. We don't know, that's the point. It has to be more than just a matter of Tribune data as the daily call's first check is for account status against the TiVo database. Do we know how VM TiVo's handle account status?

    This is just to point all those of you who subscribed to this thread to my new thread about Virgin Media's Tivo stall on the concourse of Victoria station that will be there till the end of this week (till Friday July 29th).

    It is on the Southern concourse area of the station just in front of the Gatwick Express platforms.

    Those of you who travel through Victoria station or even those of you who just work in Central London may fancy the chance to go along to Victoria station and give them your views on the non availability of the virgin Tivo to 50% of UK homes and/or its excessively high ongoing monthly subscription cost.

    See my post at http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=473381 for more information.
