Tivo box is crippled

It seems that Virgin Media has DISABLED one of the key features of Tivo, being able to watch recorded TV shows remotely.

The built-in web server is still running, the Media Access Key is still available in the settings, I can successfully log into it and all recordings are listed, however the option to view them is missing and is simply replaced with "Protected".

If you don't want people using this feature REMOVE IT FROM THE OPTIONS AND DISABLE THE WEB SERVER, that way people won't be disappointed when they find that all of their shows are locked.Tivo Sucks.png

Re: Tivo box is crippled

Indeed.

For the current TiVo box you can only stream recording from one TiVo box to another. There has never been any option to access recordings on a different device type, nor has there advertising or documentation to say it was possible.
