Re: v+ swap for tivo help

Can you please confirm where you got the TiVo from?

TiVo supplied by Virgin Media, the only source, no longer needs a card.

Re: v+ swap for tivo help

Hi there webbadam123. 

Firstly I'd like to welcome you to the forums. As Ernie_C has advised, any TiVo® box we supply does not need a smart card. 

If you've obtained this TiVo® in any other way then it will not work, and should not have been sold to you, as this box is the property of Virgin Media, and will only be activated once an agreement with us has been made. 

If you did however get this box from Virgin Media, then please let me know, and I can investigate this further for you. 

Many thanks. 

Huw
