    No. The update will auto auto-padding.

    No.

    Yes. A dynamic EPG requires input from the broadcaster but cable is a closed system and their EPG is out-sourced to third-parties.

    To be honest, I've managed fine for over ten years without one :D

    Actually, VM are considering a dynamic EPG, as stated on the official Help & Support forums. They have said though that it would take a while to implement it and it would not be controllable (i.e. would be on all the time).

    Fair enough. I don't go on there so didn't know that.

    I was hoping that you were going to ask me for a link Carl, then I could give a link just saying streets but you didn't ask for one :)

    Here is the link I read anyway,

    http://community.virginmedia.com/t5/TiVo/Is-the-Tivo-Update-getting-rolled-out-next-week/td-p/814939

    I know you don't read that forum (don't blame you, bunch of whiney people moaning about reminders). Its hard to wade through the posts to find decent information.

    The thread has now been updated by Nick Ontiveros who seems to be high up in Virgin and he says that they'll announce the update dates sometime this week. Sounds like you may be right with mid november.

    Well I had been out all at a radio networking (people, not stations) meeting in Manchester so was quite tired and didn't spot it :p

    For anyone confused as to why Virgin might be sending updates to a 16th century Latin American civilization then I think "Aztec" refers to their Aztec West site (which is about 200m from where I'm currently working!) which serves the Bristol area

    So Gloucester doesn't get the update at all?

    I am reliably informed that Gloucester and Cheltenham fall under Aztec.

    I was going to say "of course not" but that would be as stupid as what you said in the first place :rolleyes:

    My point is that, for example, where I am isn't specifically mentioned, but I know we'll get the update at the same time as possible either Leeds or York.

    I fall under either Basildon or Haringey, I think the latter but we'll all get it eventually and when/if they send out the promised email we'll know for sure. let's hope not too many people are recording things in the middle of the night when the update hits.

    Yes, point taken, I didn't expect every town to be mentioned but I live just around the corner to the Staverton (Gloucester) head end. I guess I thought we were important enough to be mentioned :)

    What I said wasn't stupid, just a little misguided.

    If you say so ;):p:D

    You would have thought Harrogate deserved a mention, if not Knaresborough; but no :(

    Hersham and Peteborough are now getting 15.2 this week.

    Also someone has stated they've just been updated in Leatherhead, Surrey

    - so they are widening the net early ;)

    Anyone got this yet know how the TiVo decides when to apply the update, or is it controlled centrally? Does it avoid recordings ?

    About 50m for me! Though I don't know if they have two Aztec West sites, the one I'm currently looking at just looks like a warehouse, which often has lots of VM vans outside.

    When I turned on my TIVO this morning, I got a message to say that the update will be coming soon, and to make sure that no-one in my household turns it off while it is updating, or I'll lose all my recordings. Did everyone get this message this morning, or is it being send out region my region? Not long to wait now, at least.
