    I am led to believe that the EPG is TiVo's and NOT VM's so that may well happen, of course if this is the case how long before someone manages to "spoof" a VM TiVo on their S1 box ;)

    :D

    You're not going to be able to spoof a VM TiVo. The TSN gives the Mothership the details of what you have. Even if you know how to change the TSN, the Mothership knows who her children are. ;)

    I suspect the most immediately visible aspect of S1 service ending will be that calls to Customer Service will no longer be answered. This is probably the main aspect of maintaining the UK service that costs money and is completely independent of the new Virgin Media service.

    So, has anyone tried calling CS since June 1st?

    Tivo discontinued telephone support months ago - you should have seen a system message.
    They also ignored my emails about the end of the service though...

    Mine was another of the nine votes for the correct answer. Although I see that a tenth member has now also voted with us.

    The ending of the service has been suspended via direct instruction of the TiVo legal team...

    All future system messages also require signing off by the same appointed legal team..

    Someone has hit a nerve with a cleverly worked legal document that arrived with tivo about two weeks ago..







    ^^
    The above has been made up by me, but to be honest.. You never know??

    I thought you were also a party to the NDA for a moment. However your speculation seem to me to be likely to probably be near the mark when their lawyers advise them on what the exclusive aspect of their contract with Virgin meant.

    Would that be the small claim action for loss of service one of our members has submitted against them.

    Yes I saw it.

    That's why I only said I thought that you were a party to the NDA "for a moment".
