    Can't come quickly enough for me ... returned from 5 days away visitng parents etc last night to discover halfway through first day it botched a channel change and ended on the dreaded 110 "You do not subscribe to LiveHD, phone xxxxx to subscribe, press OK to remove this screen" display which was what the next 4 days worth of recordings all contained as in recent power cyclings of STB to get it restart during the day then I seem to have left the time switch on "always on" rather than the "turn off 2:00-2:01 every day" setting!

    Just need to show on the registration that you are an owner of a series 1 unit. As the offer we will ultimately get is for current S1 owners and users.

    Hope that is a little clearer?

    Well I have filled in the details of my ebay Lifetime subbed machine, so I hope so:eek:

    Bought this machine a few years back replacing my original broken S1.

    Once again many thanks to Roy:up:

    Expect its ok but I registered in my name but for "technical reasons" (mainly due to the length of a call to, as was then, Telewest customer support to get our account reinstated when after renting out our house for a couple of years while I was on a work assignment to Silicon Valley we discovered our tenants had transferred our cable connection to their new address and it took them so long to sort out that I had to go somewhere else and hand the phone to my wife) our VM account is actually in my wife's name and Telewest used to refuse to talk to me citing "data protection"

    Help! All of my furniture and possessions - including my S1 Tivo - is currently in storage as I am having my house renovated. Its not due to be completed until the end of March, and I can't get to my Tivo to access the info I'll need until then. Is there a way I can still register? I am after all a current S1 owner...

    Hi,

    Unfortunately the only way to prove ownership is by a tivo service number.. one stipulation VM gave to me was, it has to be current S1 ownership that is rewarded..

    By all means you can add your info to the list but as I've said to about 5 other people today, I'm can't guarantee VM will take the registration.. sorry this bit is out of my hands..

    Roy - When we reach the registration deadline, would you mind letting us know how many registrations you have had? I'm just curious to know how many of us there are, even if this is only owners in a Virgin area. Do we number in the tens or the hundreds, or possibly the thousands? Thanks.

    I assume that my S1 currently languishing under a desk without an active monthly sub (non lifetime) means I don't get to play?

    I'm still a registered owner, if not currently active user - can I add my details to the list anyway :)

    If I were you, I'd power it up and see if there is a service number in the settings. If there is, that seems acceptable to me and I'm sure it will to them.

    I've signed up even though I'm not in a Virgin area. One reason for doing this is to show Virgin that there is interest out there in their product.

    Well done to Roy for getting us this far.:up:

    I'm in exactly the same situation as dja1971. My S1 is in a storage facility in the south of France, and is due to reach me in the UK about the 17th Jan. It's lifetime subbed. Is there no way that we (or VM) can find out the subscription information some other way?
    And before you ask, the computer that I used to use for remote admin of the TiVO is also in the same storage!

    Please remember that S1 TiVo really has nothing to do with Virgin at all.
    Unfortunately I have to have a cut off date and the 14th suited me as I'm away in China and will have some spare time to close it all down and send the data to them.

    I suggest you register and then fire me an email just to remind me to add a note on the list that you will update your service number later..

    Just remember that the registration is IP + cookie based so you will ideally have to use a different IP and clear out the cookie... otherwise it won't register

    What is this obsession with tying an "interest" to a specific ip address? Talk about absolutely pointless crap.

    Just proxy it or even better use Tor.

    Bloody amateur web apprentices.
