I don't know if anyone has posted about this previously (I did a quick search but couldn't see anything) but we recently found out the hard way not to unplug our router when going on holiday (like we've always done previously) as the V6, unlike the ordinary Tivo, loses all programme guide info after two weeks because of lack of contact with the network.
Fortunately we managed to catch up with most of the shows that didn't record through on demand, repeats and catch up services after we re-connected to the network on our return.

Thanks, well worth knowing should I win the lottery and be able to afford to be away for longer than 2 weeks😄

Unlike the old Liberate platform boxes (V boxes & V+) that pulled their EPG from the linear TV system, the TiVO & V6 use the internet. TiVO has an inbuilt modem, V6 does not so uses your Hub. No Hub no EPG updates, simples.
