I have just tried to play a saved Sky Arts2 programme and been told that it was no longer available as Sky Arts2 is no longer available on Virgin. I had assmumed that once a programme was on the Tivo hard drive it was there forever. Am I wrong about this?
This is due to some contractual restrictions imposed on Virgin Media by Sky. You can't view any recordings from a Sky channel if that channel closes down or if you change your package and no longer subscribe to the channel the recording was made from. Due to the way this was implemented, you also loose the ability to play back recordings from any non Sky channels that close down a few months after they close.
