Sorry if this has been answered already (I'm a bit late to the party and have checked previous threads, honest!) but do we know a definitive answer as to what will happen to UK TiVos which haven't moved over to ALTEPG by June 1st ? On various forums I've seen people talking about them being 'bricked' but I'm assuming that they mean there will be no guide data/subscription status as opposed to "I have no guide data so I'm going to rm -rf / now and wipe out all your programs and just display an unhappy face" ? I only use mine now for playing old recordings that I haven't had a chance to offload to DVD, and for the odd manual recording from channels which don't have guide data anyway (e.g. Sky 200). Its been powered off for a few weeks now and stored as I'm doing some house work and so it'll have expired its guide data and June 1st will have come and gone by the time I have a chance to re-connect it. - If I power it up on/after June 1 but don't connect it to the net then will it show up as a subbed TiVo which has no valid guide data and nag me to let it get guide data - but not nag me about subscribing ? - If I power it up and connect it to the Net then presumably it'll end up as account closed and then nag me about subscribing and having no guide data ? Basically if I just want to use it to play old recordings and to manual-record new ones then am I going to be ok after June 1 and should I unplug it from the net (I have a cachecard) or not ? Thanks and sorry again if this has been answered elsewhere.
