Ive had Tivo service for about 3 years now. A friend of mine is just got on the Tivo wagon about 4 months ago, but for some unforeseen reasons has to cancel his service. He still wants to be able to transfer videos to and from his PC. Will he be able to do this with pyTivo without a Tivo subscription or does he still need to have the Tivo subscription?

Sorry, but yes, you do need a subscription. The TiVo will do very little without one, and it won't do any network transfers. IIRC, it's limited to playing back existing recordings, and trick play of LiveTV.

Thanks. I will let him know. I've been using pyTivo myself for a couple of months and have loved it and just thought this might be a good option for him, but I guess not. Well, thanks again for the info.
