    So that makes 3 users left and not five by my count.

    ie. 638, 639 and 640.

    Er, so I'm 641?

    Monthly sub and 120Gb disk upgrade I did ages ago. Had it since 2003 and would miss it if it was gone. We got a Panasonic DMR-EX 77 DVD recorder but use it much less than the simple-to-use TiVo.

    Occasionally it misses a channel change and buggers up a recording - I'd love a new replacement with built-in digital tuner - if only they'd sell one!

    Lifetime sub
    BUT how much longer unless we get the daily call problem fixed?

    I have posted twice on this in the Daily Call Problem thread (a forum thread that though recent is mysteriously difficult to access) but no help or replies. Customerr service say is is NOT fixed and no numbers provided here work for me, Might be a BT problem too? But we need it sorted please. And soon.

    So are you. This is a thread about how many UK users are left, not a platform for your random thoughts.

    The message that Carl was referring to has now been deleted and you may not have seen it. If that is not the case your comment is harsh and out of place. :):)

    Pete - you seem confident in your count; how do you know that nobody who previously said that they were a UK user has now bailed?

    Do you think you should trawl back through the thread & individually confirm by PM that they still are, just to be sure? :D

    Well you can count me out, of course. So that's 642; unless I've already been dis-counted? (Make up your own jokes if you like, just don't post them here :p)

    I have decided to delegate that task to you as both your methodology and commitment to the job looks as though it is far superior to mine.;):D

    It's always a good idea to include any spam messages in a quote before you report them, so you don't look stupid after it's been deleted. ;)

    Just make sure that you remove any embedded advertising links first, so you don't perpetuate the spam.

    I'm the (un)fortunate owner of 8, yes eight(!!) TiVos, and I'm working on the latest one. Usual trouble of the Yanks not speaking to Sky and the normal delay of getting it kicked in! Lah Di Dah!!!

    Time for a new Freeview box or may be even a Freesat one perhaps? Both Sky Freesat boxes and the BBC/ITV Freesat boxes are on the whole much better maintained in terms of things like firmware upgrades etc.

    643 and 644 lifetime since 2001.

    I use them for recording standard definition TV shows for TV's on which I also have V+ HD boxes. I am really looking forward to finally having the latest software and HD support from TiVo.

    BTW, TiVo should do something for those of us who have been their abandoned vanguard in the UK for all these years.

    Might have to subtract one.. I'm /still/ on a monthly sub with my TiVo but am thinking of cancelling .. I've had no sound and a juddery picture for a few weeks, and a tweak to the PSU only sorted it briefly. The other box I have was giving a sparkly screen before I swapped them over last year. I've also got a US model series 1 in cupboard somewhere, but can't sub that over here obviously..

    We've got a Sky HD box sat next to it, and that gets the most use, simply because the picture quality is so much better on a 50" plasma, even though it's as slow as molasses and has a dreadful UI.. The TiVo has been running in a "backup" role, catching stuff that the Sky box misses, corrupts or simply decides that a season has finished even through it hasn't. But with no sound, well, it's not a lot of use for that...

    Could definitely do with TiVo launching a new HD box over here. Sadly, I think Sky has the market sewn up.
