    I have a series 2 80 hour tivo and I was wondering if I cancelled the monthly service if I would be able to continue to use the tivo to go software to interface with my tivo?

    The reason I want to do this is because the only thing that I use my tivo for is to transfer videos off of my computer that I have reencoded onto my tivo. If I cancel my monthly tivo service will I still be able to transfer stuff from my computer to my tivo?

    Thanks for your help.

    Pretty sure you can't. The way I understand it, if you don't supscribe to the TiVo service, then you lose all of the functionality of the box.

    The only functions that will remain are those inherent in the 30 minute buffer, pause, rewind and fast forward.

    I think that the NPL is still available for viewing from that TiVo. But, to be able to transfer shows you need to have a subscription.

    People's...
    You would be able to play back recordings currently stored on the TiVo's drive. You would not be able to add anything to the NPL, however, whether by recording or by transferring.

    Home Media features and functionality are only functional with a subscription.

    An unsubscribed box will not be visible to the TIVO Desktop software and vice versa.
