Using TIVO on PLAY after leaving

I am moving house in a few months time, to somewhere where Virgin Media is not available. Virgin have told me that they do not want my elderly TIVO back, and to take it to recycling. I have a lot recorded on it and I was wondering if it could be used in PLAY mode only at my new place, or does it require a Virgin Mobile "presence" for this?

Thanks in advance,

David Fuller

Re: Using TIVO on PLAY after leaving

This is not allowed under Virgins agreement with the broadcasters. If your subscription ceases, so does your right to view any recorded material from the channels.

To view your recordings the box MUST be connected to the network when it boots up, as it checks your account details are valid.

If it cannot connect the boot sequence will fail.
