    Quite a few actually. Going on modifications alone, which is no accurate indication of the total number given I don't see them all as not everyone wants theirs modded, there would have to be at least a few dozen of these alone.

    In reality there are close on 1,000 active TiVo's in Australia alone and Warren Toomey keeps a log of what ones download what guide data for any particular area given he can quantify this from the Guide Data server. Might pay to have a look around the oztivo website at www.oztivo.com and see if you can find the list somewhere.

    Yep it's getting there.... slowly but surely

    The sharp decline in email list subscribers seems to happen after Warren does the email reminder about your subscription which happens every now and then. Maybe he did a clean up or something.

    Ad 3 more to the list

    Well you can add 3 more Tivos to the list..

    I picked up 3 Philips S1 unit on ebay today..
    2 for $80
    and 1 for $40 (USD

    These are for friends and 1 will be a wedding gift for my sister..(the groom will need tivo)

    The $40 one has a stuffed modem but i will be fitting a network card anyway.
    I am I correct in this point??
    Darren do you still sell cards?? If so how much please..

    Yes. Fitting a Turbonet (or the clones: Terbonet or X-Factor) will work. I also repair the internal modems if required or you can also use an external modem via the serial port.

    Unfortunately the supply of X-Factors has totally dried up for myself, Peter and George. The supplier chose to bail out of getting any more made. Your only option now is to look for a suitable one on ebay or visit www.9thtee.com and get the genuine Turbonet and pay the premium price.

    Another Brisbane TiVo owner

    G'day, just wanted to confirm that there's me in Paddo (one TiVo, PAL tuner mod and all initial setup done by Darren King, so I'm perhaps no expert!) and one of my mates in Red Hill (procured & setup by his brother, so again not perhaps a power user!).

    Cheers,
