    257 - lifetime, my 'sky' TiVo
    258 - lifetime, my 'freeview' TiVo
    259 - lifetime, my sister's TiVo
    260 - lifetime, my 'test' TiVo

    Maybe I should add in all the lifetime subbed customers I've had in the last year too..... ;)

    261 - Lifetime, connected to Sky+

    Bought Tivo many years ago from Comet in a deal with a Thomson 28" TV, and used it for 5 years, until I moved house.

    Then tried Sky+ for a year, and missed the season passes, on-screen EPG, easy to use remote, and ability to display only the channels I'm interested in, so the Tivo is now sat driving the Sky+ box.

    Do miss the twin tuners and better picture quality of Sky+ though.

    I keep checking to see what I can replace it with, but nothing ever compares. Come on Tivo give us a UK Freesat box!

    And now Suggestions are back so we know that Tivo does still care about its UK Series 1 customers.:up::up::up:

    A relative newbie, bought off Ebay for £200 about 4 or 5 years ago, SWMBO was not impressed with big silver box at first, now if i idly mention looking at building a PVR she refuses to accept anything other than Tivo! :) Even my 3 year old loves the peanut!

    269 - Lifetime sub since 2000, hacked and upgraded. We love our TiVo and are terrified it will die!

    274 here - 250GB TiVo with TiVoweb Plus and various other things. I did have Mode 0 but killed it (it was driving my better half mad with the flashes).

    I pay monthly - as whilst a lifetime would (have) be(en) cheaper, I wanted to keep TiVo in the UK ticking over if I could.

    I don't think Alistair Campbell himself could have managed to give that a more positive spin.;):p

    But it is true that whether intentionally or not that Tivo users such as yourself and Carl have been doing far more to keep the Tivo UK service going than those of us who initially took what may have seemed like a long term gamble.
