    Anyone got this working yet? Thought I'd have a poke round it this morning.

    The link on the guide says virginmedia.com/tvguide

    When I go there it redirects to http://tv.virginmedia.com/vtvapp/epg.do with a 404 which says

    type Status report

    message

    description The requested resource () is not available.

    It wont load for me either. I have had it load before though. Not a good start for you. Hopefully it wont be down long.

    Do VM still do their dial up payg internet access? If they do you should be able to sign up to that and get a virgin username / password for free. You don't actually need to use the dial up.

    A quick look online and I can find set up details (http://bit.ly/dLmE8Y) but nowhere to actually sign up for it.

    don't forget that version is designed to be used on mobile phones and such.
    Once the normal TV guide is backup and running again it's much better to use from a PC.

    agreed, and if you have a fairly up to date phone you can use that same full fat interface (still down atm) on your phone too, I have an Android 2.2 phone and it works well.

    Well, he must have been called out and earned himself some overtime as it was working late last night ... managed to request a recording and noticed an hour or so later that there was a message on the TiVo telling me that the relevant recording request had been received and processed ... just added the "mobile" version to my android phone - not sure that "browsing" schedules is really feasible but as you can search for program it will work for those times when you go away and discover there's something on you were wanting to watch but can't.

    Got this to work - but only for one-off recordings, no option for season passes despite it mentioning that functionality:
    (hover over the question mark)
    Maybe its on the web developers todo list ;)
