    You were right Dave - here's another one...

    Shall we run a book on what the last one on 1st June will be? I'll go with "So long and thanks for all the fish, suckers"

    That statement is of course is not correct, you also need to live in a VirginMedia fibre networked area and not on a private road.

    Go on, I'll bite... how much is the 'very special price' compared with what the general public will be paying ?

    I might even consider it ;)

    I'm hoping for a Dossa and Joe forced recording of the national anthem followed by a white dot like the old days of close down.

    £149 up front at this stage and you have to sign up for the XL tv channel package. I have taken the plunge (with HD) and I am happy, especially as I have already had it recording 3 programmes simultaneously on a Thursday evening.

    I am still hopeful that I can run my series 1 after 1st June if the alternative EPG happens -AND I can access it given that my series 1 is not connected to the internet

    unless the regs have changed, ASA's remit only covers "public" advertising - this isn't public (viz. you already have a "relationship" with the company and therefore they can spout any bollos they like).

    Whatever these are possibly the most bastard annoying spam messages that I receive.

    So as this is the third time I'm off to buy 3 lottery tickets (next time it'll be 4 then 5 etc) if (and lets be honest it's a whopping big IF) I win big time then TiVo and Virgin get pursued with injunctions etc

    I know the odds are overwhelmingly in their favour but each time they p*ss me off those odds get just a little bit more on my side.

    My message to TiVo: we know about the Virgin deal, now back the truck up

    can I amend that to ' We know about the Virgin deal that others may be able to get, whilst we on this road cannot, and thank you again Tivo for killing a service we could actually receive and replacing it with the one we can't actually get.
