Transferring shows to my new tivo from an old tivo...
Jul 20, 2009 at 5:34:02 PM  |  #1
[Archived]  

I will be receiving the Tivo HD XL tomorrow!

I currently have Tivo 2 DT.  I have about 16 episodes of various tv shows on my current tivo, but I don't feel like going on a 16 hour marathon to "clear out" the tivo before my new one arrives in the mail tomorrow.

Will it be possible to transfer the shows from the old tivo to the new one?  I do have a 2nd tv in another room, but I do not have the multi-room plan thing. 

Am I out of luck?  or how will I be able to transfer shows from my old tivo to me new one?

Can my old one be plugged in during non-programming times just to catch up and clear out the queue?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks.

Both TiVos have to be subscribed to in order to do the transfer.  However, you can keep a non-subscribed TiVo connected for as long as you want and be able to watch all of the recorded programs.

well, my old one is subscribed right now, and my new one has been subscribed for immediate use.

so essentially, I should still have the rest of the month of both tivo's being subscribed.  so with this being true, how can I do the transfer?

Both TiVos need to be on your home network and your new TiVo needs to have been active long enough on the same account as the old one for it to have downloaded it's Media Access Key -- it should happen after a few connections.  At that point, the old TiVo should appear at the bottom of the Now Playing List of the new TiVo... you can select recordings to transfer from there.

I see.

 

Does my old tivo need to be plugged in somewhere to see "At that point, the old TiVo should appear at the bottom of the Now Playing List of the new TiVo..."?

As I said, both TiVos must be on your home network.  If you aren't using the old TiVo to record, it doesn't need to be connected the cable or TV, but it does need to be up, running, and on the network.

so does that mean I need a second TiVo Wireless G USB Network Adapter?

 

or hwo can I save 60 bucks by using my current adapter?  i.e. which tivo would I want to plug it in to?

 

sorry, but I'm kind of illiterate in tv electronics.

Both of your TiVos have built-in wired adapters.  One can use the wireless adapter and the other can be wired directly to the router.

You could move your Series 2 DT close to your router and connect it with an Ethernet cable. Use the Tivo wireless adapter on the new Tivo. This will put both of them on your home network.

Or you could setup a peer to peer network uisng an Ethernet crossover cable between the 2 Tivos, if you are electronics challanged, probably more complex than you want to deal with.

FYI, you can find the Tivo wirless adapter discounted at places like Amazon.com.

So for the 90 of us that has Timewarner, Comcast and CableVision this is not an option because they Flag every channel. CCI flag guidlines does not disallow transfer from one secure device to secure device. This shows that Tivo need to add a secure streaming server to the tivo software. This shows that Tivo hasn't made a evolutinary changes since launch in 1999. They are decivce centric and havn't embraced the UPNP and HDNA enviroment.

Huh?  We are talking about transferring from a Series 2 DT to a Series 3.  The 2DT cannot even see the CCI byte since it is an ANALOG receiver.  This is simply not an issue for this discussion.

By the way, while I like the idea of streaming, it also doesn't apply to series 2s, that would only work between two series 3 units, if it ever comes to pass.

Perhaps you should start your own thread or post in one about MRV between HD TiVos, because you are way off topic here.  What you are complaining about will not affect the original poster of this thread at all, you are worrying him needlessly.

Scolding me? I waited 3 days to interject with my concern. The Series 2 could play streams from a Series 3 if a player was added.

You're also off base about Comcast.  I was in a neighborhood that was copy-protected and, after working with them and the local franchise authority for a few weeks, got them to remove protection from all non-premium channels.

You also neglect to mention my current provider, Verizon FiOS, which has no protection at all.
