TiVo software was last updated in Feb/Mar 2002. This was a complete rewrite of the software, not just a few minor updates. This update will be received as part of the trial sub.Originally posted by Azrikam
Another point. The software for the UK Tivo hasn't been updated in ages (years?), so not getting updates isn't a big deal. Your box will upgrade to the latest version during your trial period anyway.
Thanks for this information. I read in a magazine I trusted that without a subscription the TiVo was essentially useless!Originally posted by MarkE19
Without a sub TiVo will:
record like a VCR (set start/stop time & channel)
pause live TV
rewind live TV
It will NOT:
List recordings by name
get any future software updates.
A brand new unit will give you arounf 1 week of full service free. If you like it you can subscribe at any time (during free trial or after). If you do not subscribe then yohave got a good quality digital video recorder.
Prior to the release of the latest software (2.5.5) the TiVo was just a door stop without the subOriginally posted by leeb

I have heard that John Lewis still have some units available. They are not listed on their web site, so phone a store and they should do a search for you. Priced at around £150.However it's all in vain, since I can't find a Tivo at any price, anywhere. Any ideas?
