    I meant if you moved to an area where cable is available. Only trying to be friendly :/

    Well I guess the chances of a Series 1 Tivo owner moving to a Virgin cables area are a hell of a lot higher than Virgin extending the area of the country that they cover, particularly as they wont cable my street despite all the streets surrounding me being cabled and the ducts running within 25 metres of my house :(

    Just to add to this, my TiVO 1 is still going with the AltEPG and sits on the shelf below the VM TiVo. I use a video sender to send the signal up to the bedroom and we still us it on a daily basis. :up:

    As the AltEPG statistics show, there are around 1000 active series 1 Tivos using the service.

    Tivo is dead. Long live AltEPG Tivo!

    I assume you are looking at the "logged since" numbers?

    If you look at the call statistics they show a fairly steady figure of just over 7000 calls per week over the past 6 months, or around 1000 per day.

    I'm not sure why there is a difference. It does look like while around 2000 TiVo's have been registered only about 1000 have actually been put into daily use, but that 1000 number is remaining fairly steady.

    I live in a VM cable area. No contact from VM despite registering on the two websites where were supposed to be showing an interest earlier this year. They keep phoning me to offer phone (been there done that, and got rid) and TV but never a TiVo or BB upgrade.

    ISTM that people are only buying them for the network cards.

    Without a network card they are currently selling for between £1 and £6. Don't forget the real cost to the buyer is with the postage added on, so (with the large amount that people want for postage) it makes it quite expensive. People used to buy them just for the power supply but even they are selling for £1 each at the moment!

    If your buyer can collect then you might get a few quid extra.

    Whatever happens don't just throw them away or break them up for parts!

    If I lived more central I would gladly store any unwanted TiVos for when the community needed spares, but it would cost me too much in postage to buy every one on the market :(

    I set mine up with AltEPG intending to let my daughter use it for her kids TV. We watched the backlog and then realised that no one had touched it in weeks. The kid likes to watch in either room and with 2tb and 3 tuners I don't need to worry about capacity on the MCE PC.
    Turned off at the mains but still can't quite bring myself to ebay it...yet.

    Very similar situation. 2 in store 1 in partial use in that with 2 VM Tivos and a 3TB 4 tuner MCE the Tivo in use is only used as a way of getting stuff off of the VM Tivo to the PC.

    If and when VM do implement Multi Room streaming and Tivo desktop then the S1 Tivo will see it's end in my household. A sad day it will be.
