Because, quite simply, it reduces the value of the subscription and, therefore, can potentially reduce the income for TiVo.
Two issues here, one is whether such a mechanism can be dabated in the forum and the other is whether this is service theft. My take on whether it's service theft is as stated above, but on the first issue, this forum is supported by TiVo, so I could quite understand why this view might be the one TiVo might take.
However: I have a lifetime sub on one machine and a recently started monthly sub on another. To me, this approach would give me only the functionality to make manual recordings (automated). No listings, no season passes, no wishlists. These are the facilities which set the TiVo service apart from an unsubbed box... not the ability to schedule a timed manual recording which comes out of the (unsubbed) box or the subbed box.
I certainly wouldn't get into a fight about this (but I am slightly annoyed at this approach being called service theft!) because I am merely a guest on someone else's board
