Forgive my interest in the matter - I've been inactive on this forum for probably 7-8 years (having originally been the supplier of the alternative channel logos for the Channel Guide), and looking at the forum, there's very little activity now on the TiVo Series 1 UK front. I was wondering if, after the June 1st 2011 switch off, whether some form of third party data source had been set up to allow the old TiVos to continue working in a similar way that an Australian service had been provided by enthusiasts? While I haven't used my TiVo "in anger" for over 7-8 years, it would be nice to fire it up and still see some form of limited automatic use - but I guess the lack of activity in this forum probably answers my question in the negative - the TiVo service in the UK really did die a death for S1 in 2011 and the unit can do little more than record using manually supplied start and end times. I'll add that I was probably one of the first in the UK to regularly actively use a TiVo, with a unit in regular use from very early 2000 (possibly even late 1999). Yes, TiVo didn't start selling in the UK until October 2000 but I was involved with their early testing in the UK and had access to several early "test" units including initially a Philips US S1 which had to be used with an expensive external NTSC standards converter for input and later, a very early Thompson (which came with no front panel). Initially supplied with a dialup service for Sky only with a limited number of channels - and initially the dialup was to a non-free number in the States until shortly before full launch in the UK. TiVo had the best user interface I've used for a PVR - and I've been told that we'll all be driving flying cars and wearing silver suits before Virgin Media (or any other cable company) comes to my area. I remember the launch day of TiVo vividly - I went to my local Currys store and was dismayed to see the sign under the TiVo reading "When buying this, you may wish to buy VHS video tape". The shop display TiVo (in demo mode) was languishing in a corner and staff didn't have a clue what it was or how it worked.
