From 1 November, will the Networking part disappear so that it won't be possible to pull from a PC or other TIVO?

 

I assume this feature (and hopefully pushing to a TIVO) will return in the new software?

 

If you buy a used TIVO, what will happen with regards to the deactivating/activating that used to be necessary? Will the new PROM remove the need for that?

Once you have your TIVO modded with a new PROM chip and the new software, it won't matter what state it's in then or even now. Activating or deactivating will not be required as a guided setup will work fine with the new mothership either way, even if it's been deactivated. If you already have the HNP (as I have) there will still be some functionality, although transfers between Tivos will maybe stop (we don't know for sure yet), but maybe re-enabled as a feature in future. We have pretty much every eventually sorted, including new images on 1TB and 2TB drives etc.
