Hi, I know this is a stupid question but just wanted to check. We are changing our Tivo box to a TV V6 Box in 2 weeks time, but I've just realised that we will lose all our recorded shows. Just wondering if there is any way to save them or will I have to spend the next couple of weeks watching them all?!

You will be amazed how much you decide to simply 'let go' (and how many shows will still be available on catch-up or in on-demand boxsets, which the V6 handles very well). I ordered the V6 a couple of weeks ago and the earliest installation date I could get was end of March, so I though "fine, that gives me a lot of time to watch my recordings". However, when I was offered a new date of 20th Feb, which, at the time, was only about five days away, I took it and just got ruthless with my recordings. Films went, as they come round again. A couple of documentary series went for similar reasons (BBC4 tend to cycle these). I piled through a couple a dramas with my wife in the evenings, and the rest I simply deleted. Some of those I knew were on iPlayer or the like, others I figured if I hadn't watched them in the months I'd kept them then I wasn't really that interested in the first place.
