Re: 500mb Question

Keep hold of the TiVo for now in case they do ask for it. Plenty still get refurbished.

I'm pretty sure that VM are currently collecting the 500GB TiVo boxes again.

It should be made clear in the box that new V6 comes in VM want the old TiVo box back.

Re: 500mb Question

Ive still got my old Superhub 2 and VHD box so I will hang onto them and my Tivo for a year and if I don't hear from them I will dispose of them responsibly.

Thanks for your replies everyone

Re: 500mb Question

The Sh2 and V HD definitely won't be asked to be returned once they're not in use.
