OK I cut the cord this week. Cancelled cable and my Tivo account after many years. For some reason my Tivo guide remained(without any season pass, search features or any other options)-just the OTA guide. I'm told that is normal. I was able to manually record programs. But then I decided to disconnect my OTA cable from the Tivo, to check my connections, then reconnected and BOOM! No more Tivo guide-in fact the Tivo doesn't even come on. Lost cause?
