    Yep, "That's all folks...." as Porky Pig used to say :)

    The only thing missing is it wasn't a Friday ;-)

    But can a networked Tivo still access the data?

    As this route is unofficial perhaps they don't know about it?

    my networked machine can't, but my network seems to be playing up, so it may not be connected

    The error message says "Number Not Answering" - but it seems to be the network connection that is no longer working as the number is answered.

    My networked TiVo just completed a forced daily call just fine @ 22:45, with guide data now running to Sun 3rd July. The previous daily call at 11:25 this morning had guide data to Sat 2nd July.

    If updates by phone have stopped working though, I'm sure it's only a matter of time before network updates meet the same fate... :(

    Would adding a dial-up prefix for a dial up access provider such as this one not work?

    http://www.free-dialup.net/

    Don't recall if the TiVo tries to contact an IP on a reserved internal range or a public IP ....

    Yes, you can use that - but its a little more complicated than just changing the number in the GUI.

    All those 0844/0845 internet services use authenticated PPP (PAP)
    Tivo uses unauthenticated ppp by default - to change it you also need to edit some files on the tivo filesytem.

    They certainly got up early to turn off the switch. Mine failed at 6.55am

    A sad day but the sun will still rise tomorrow






    won't it?

    My networked Tivo completed its call at 6:21am this morning and now it has data until the 3rd of July. They may leave the network route on ... we will see :)

    According to davehealey over on tivoland yesterday was "d day", with dial up being turned off.

    I assume it's only a matter of time before the networked option finally "dies".

    This is a bit ironic. Unmodded boxes can no longer get the service, but those who have breached the service agreement by networking their TiVos can!
