Using Medicacom TiVO with my TiVO OTA
Jul 10, 2017 at 9:10:19 AM  |  #1

I currently have a Tivo OTA and I am looking at adding Mediacom cable TV, they will provide their Tivo box with the cable tv service.

 

1)  Will I be able to share recordings between the two Tivo boxes.   

 

2)  Can I purchase a Tivo mini from you and use it with the Mediacom Tivo box,  they say I can but just want to make sure.

Hi terrestrial! 

Yes, you can be able to transfer your recordings from your TiVo Roamio OTA to the Mediacom device. That's the only way that our TiVo device works with Mediacom device. However, you would need a Mediacom specific Mini, to work with a Mediacom specific Host. TiVo Mini cannot use a Mediacom DVR as a Host.

Since both boxes would need the same MAK to share recordings, how would this be possible?  The Mediacom TiVo won't be able to be added to his personal TiVo account, and his OTA can't be added to the 'cable' account.  Unless something has changed recently, cable-supplied Tivo's have not been able to be added to personal accounts.

Hi eherberg

For both boxes to have the same MAK, the customer's Mediacom and TiVo account needs to be merged. This can be made possible by contacting TiVo Customer support.

Am I limited to just transferring recordings from Roamio OTA to the Mediacom Tivo?  What I would like to be able to do is use the Roamio OTA to play a recording from the Mediacom Tivo.  If I can not do that then looks like my only option is to get a Mediacom Mini for my second TV.

No, you're not limited to that. You can also do the transfer of your recordings from your Mediacom box to your TiVo Roamio OTA.
