    Perhaps Virgin and Tivo will do something nice....

    1. Change your box so it lists all the programs you would get with a new Virgin Tivo.

    2. Change the software so the manual record functions is more friendly and remove nag screens to subscribe.

    I'm counting on a software tweak so that your TiVo, while you're at work, digs up the road and lays a fibre cable to the nearest Virgin network (12 miles in my case). :cool:

    That wont work for unmoddified Tivos, only those that have had the "Shovels 3.0" hack installed.

    My mate at Virgin Media tells me that the phone numbers used for daily calls are being deactivated. So your Tivo will run out of guide data in two weeks.

    That's interesting as of course every UK Tivo should be getting guide data over the phone line.

    But we know different!
