    A few weeks ago I emailed cablemystreet at virgin dot com to see if there was any hope of getting a new Tivo when they are launched.

    They did look into my enquiry and I was initially quite hopeful until I received this today :(

    Must be worth moving house to a virgin cabled area.

    Wouldnt have to move far..... 30m East, 30m south, 40m North or 10m West. I am surrounded by cable, just not passed by it :(

    Talk to your neighbours and sling some coax through the trees?
    I feel your pain - as I'm 13 miles from the nearest cable network I'm never expecting to see this new Tivo but you must be gutted - so near and yet so far :(

    You think you have it hard? I live in Kingston-upon-Hull, where Kingston Communications have a complete monopoly on telecoms. No cable, choice of ADSL, fibre TV here ... :mad:

    Werent they forced to open up the market when BT were forced to do the rest of the country ? Seems VERY unfair to me :(

    I never knew Kingston was near Bristol :)

    I once had to go to BT in Kingston to feed some news video material . They were hard to find - they kept a low profile there.
