    Mine is as it was when it came out of the box. Well - ok - it was out of the shop window, with no box anywhere to be found in the stockroom ... the last remaining Tivo in Eastbourne. Half price. 40Gb unhacked, lifetime subs.
    It's still performing as well as it ever did, despite use almost every day and under the burden of about 38 season passes (!) (only about 5 of which are active at any one time of course).
    I have only one regret - that I am no longer able to record radio from Sky. I only used to record one programme - Gilles Peterson, overnight but I miss the ability to do so. And that's just the way things happen I guess - Sky change the numbers, we lose out.

    When it dies, and I dread the day, it'll be like losing a well-loved old lap cat.

    I did it! At home and not got 'net installed yet - so cheekily using my laptop to share my mobiles net connection... all I needed to do was to set my laptop's ip to the gateway ip tivo was looking for and away we went! Currently preparing data. Sky Plus - Pah! Excellent. Tivo's back!

    No, many of the posts are clearly exagerated.

    Initially Sky+, now Freesat+, which works as well as a Tivo, but records HD and has a twin tuner, which Tivo lacked.

    I honestly didn't expect you to tell me I made a great choice, you are stuck in your idea that Tivo is the greatest thing since sliced bread. It had it's day and now is just an oversized doorstop.

    at number 418 although I think my modem has just died as it wont connect.

    I take it we're still able to connect to lifetime?

    Also, if my modem has died. who or what/where can I get it to update via the web?

    It seems that this thread should be stickied to Page 1 of the Tivo UK forum section, judging by how posts have picked up again since it arrived back at the top of the list.
