That's the whole point! As the subscription level is checked during playback you CAN build up a collection of recordings made while you are not yet subscribed to any channel!

I don't think you can be correct - or, rather, NOT currently!

VM's website clearly says 49 for "HD activation" on a V+ box on all packages (including XL!)

I meant the "product launch event" where the final two candidates show off their "products". That has quite a large number of "Industry Experts" - some of whom might be expected to perhaps "leak"!
