Advertisements For folks who feel leaving their TiVo's disconnected (prior to deactivation) would preserve their lifetime features after deactivation. This is on S2 after around 45 days, but I remember the same happening to S3. There was an assertion that latest TiVo software has a bug where the 30 day connect enforcement was broken. I can confirm on S2 that is not the case as this is latest S2 software. On S3, I was using very old software so I can't confirm if the latest software would behave the same way (ie it is possible that bug exists and it is possible it doesn't, I can't say either way).
