Virgin Media 500GB Cisco Tivo Box .

I have just took the delivery of my new Tivo box and on looking at the back of it  there seems to be a slot for inserting a smartcard so I asume that the smartcard that I have had for a wee while now must be put into the said slot . Can anyone advise me about this .

The smartcard is no longer required. Just go ahead without it.

Thanks mate , I have already done that and my telly programmes are okay but why did they make a slot in the first place , it does not make sense unless it is for an occasional use for paid sports or movie channels .

Re: Virgin Media 500GB Cisco Tivo Box .

When the hardware was designed, the slot was used for security.

The security is done a different way now which doesn't require a card.
