Advertisements We have a Phillips Tivo Series 1 with a lifetime subscription. We do not have cable, it is used for OTA (over the air - antenna) reception. Our question is what are our options for using the unit after the Feb. transition? All of our analog televisions have converter boxes, a mix of Zeniths and DTVPals. We did buy a new Tivo XD XL for our main OTA family room unit. Combined with our Netflix subscription who needs cable We want to use our old Series 1 unit in the kids playroom to record PBS kids shows off a single channel OTA. The only option I see is to use it as a "dumb" equivalent to a VCR. I can set the converter box to the PBS channel (10-1)and leave it, then set the Tivo for a manual time recording for each show on the converter box output channel (3). This will work, however none of the recordings in 'Now Playing' will have a meaningful title. And will Tivo keep providing phone updates to at least allow the Tivo clock to keep in synch? It would be nice if Tivo would do two things to support these old units: provide one last software update allowing you to set a fixed input channel (3 or 4), regardless of the channel you have selected to record in the guide, and continue to provide guide data. This would allow those of us with lifetime Series 1 subs at least some basic functionality post-transition.
