Yes, or everything will get disabled, but you can watch recordings already on the tivo.
Not sure I understood the answer. Are you saying that you can watch what is in the Now Playing list on the Tivo but Tivo Desktop will no longer be able to transfer items off of the Tivo? If that is the case, my recommendation would be to transfer the files from the Tivo using the free program "kmttg" (Tivo To Go) prior to letting the subscription lapse. This program will let you convert the Tivo video file format to something more computer friendly.Yes, or everything will get disabled, but you can watch recordings already on the tivo.
