Advertisements Lots of speculation about what happens to a deactivated Tivo. So I'm running an experiment, just for fun. Tivo Bolt Vox, currently set up guide for antenna and only used for cable before. I did guide change over before canceling and filled up the Tivo. I don't get good antenna reception so to me this is like a VCR with lots of show and movie videos on the book shelf. I don't care if it bricks as long as My Shows still work. Although having the Mini's work is nice. I disconnected internet before canceling. It's been 32 days since my last connection. Tivo still reports account in good standing. Below that it C071420, which I thought meant the Tivo would brick on that date. I did get one message about 30 days since last connection and Guide info has run out. Mini’s still work and manual recordings still work. All settings not needing internet work except no guide data. Mini's are connected via Ethernet using an old router not connected to the internet. I also just updated the clock by disconnecting after clock connection. I will update if anything changes or in 30 days.
