    Lifetime since 2002

    Only recently got around to fitting a cachecard - well worth the effort (should have done it ages ago)

    301 - On a monthly subscription 'cos I didn't want to risk a lifetime sub 6 years ago. D'oh!

    Never mind, it's part of the family now...

    Think I picked mine up in some kind of clearout for 99 pound back in 2001 or early 2002 (still have a recording saved on it from summer '02!).. bargain.

    It's just a standard, unmodified unit with lifetime sub, and I've moved about a bit so it has been used off-and-on, but it does the job.

    306 - I wonder though how many Tivo users aren't members of this Forum. Anyone care to guess - even if the ratio is say 5 to 1 non-members to members, that means there are only about 2000 Tivo users in the UK. No wonder Tivo USA gave up on us....

    I still use my Tivo but I have canceled my subscription while my work keeps me away from home most of the time.

    And, yes, the Tivo still has some useful functions without a subscription.

    I plan to re-subscribe when I'm back to a more normal life sometime in the next month or two

    Always thought it was a marketing problem - when sky decided to to really go for the market with Sky+ TiVo didn't fire back with the things I find best 1. Suggestions (who has time to look at Guides in minute detail - TiVo is really smart at picking things it sees I might like - sure its way off mark occasionally but most of the time.........). 2. Season passes - my new HDD often seems to "forget" it had a season pass if the time of a program is changed for a week or something. 3. Radio series - again, my HDD doesn't KNOW that radio HAS series and as the guide only carries 2 weeks' worth of data I have to keep "reminding it". 4. Live replay is easier on TiVo (and it shows what it is currently recording in "Now Playing" - I have to go into my menu and search to find out why the little red light is in on my HDD.

    Thees are why I am trying to get my TiVo up and running again and posted elsewhere.

    Perhaps Thompson ought to have got us to sell the product for them. Is it too late to try again?

    There is one other thing, if like my parents who live in the wilds of Cornwall, you are pretty much forced to have Sky as they can't get "Freeview" and when Terrestrial signal goes they will be without TV otherwise. They did try with the Skybox and TiVo but despite that happy little logo which says "recommended by Sky" they struggled. As I posted earlier, sadly, they dumped the TiVo (with lifetime sub, :eek:) before I could wrest it off them. Sad as I got it as a pressie for my Dad who adored its functionality but as he's getting older, can't tap in to the expertise of sites like this as he would once have done. He just got frustrated and sadly that's one fewer TiVo for the total.
