    Any news? I would have thought your claim would have been heard by now?

    He's been kidnapped by TiVo's goons to stop the claim.

    Then you clearly don't know the civil court process in this country very well.

    If Tivo's side demanded more time to come up with evidence or call witnesses etc then the hearing could easily be adjourned to a later date a number of different times.

    Only if both parties are content for matters to proceed to court as quickly as possible does a hearing take place in weeks rather than in months or years.

    As per usual Pete77 you are talking out of your arfe. You are mixing up the Small Claims process with "normal" court actions. The small claims procedure (or whatever it is called these days) is specifically designed to PREVENT the defendants doing exactly what you describe.


    (And yes I do know the process quite well since I have actually been through it, several times - unlike you who only knows the procedure you have dreamt and invented after skim reading one web page somewhere irrelevant. Hint: you do NOT "call witnesses" to a small claims hearing! Now go back in to your hole and only come out when or IF you have something helpful to write.)
    (p.s. I bet you even think the hearing takes place in a Court Room with ushers and a stenographer as well don't you?...just like you've seen on TV)

    He probably had to sign a non-disclosure agreement as part of the settlement!

    Like @spitfires, I would be interested to know how @rwtomkins is getting on with his claim.

    I have just gone back and read all of @rwtomkins' recent posts in this thread and while it is possible that the case was silently dropped, I don't think (from what I've just read) that the FAQ produced by Tivo is anywhere near sufficient to satisfy my own disappointment with Tivo.

    Given Pete's age it was probably County Court on ITV!

    (Actually "Last Activity: 08-21-2011 09:22 PM" so he's here but not replying!)

    If he maintains radio silence much longer you'd have to conclude he has successfully settled out of court in return for keeping quiet.

    Your turn to file Pete!

    Wasn't it "Crown Court" - the one with the portentous theme tune?
    (I must get out more :) )

    Yeah, one of the best reasons to be off school sick. Crown Court, A Country Practice and the Monday Matinee. :)

    Either that or he's too embarrassed that, after all the hyperbole and bluster, his claim failed :p:)

    I don't think so, he was doing it as a punt and he doesn't strike me as they type to go all shy if the claim was lost.

    Either he's inhibited from posting for some reason, or he's settled. The other options don't strike me as likely.

    I agree. And it seems likely that he's subscribed to this topic (based on the speed of his replies previously) so he's undoubtedly aware of recent posts. Therefore I would conclude that he has settled out of court with a full gagging agreement.

    We are in one of the most popular weeks of the year to be away on holiday with your family. I suspect that this is where he may well be and that he does not have internet access there.
