I'm sure I'm not the first to ask this but I can't find a question or an answer... so...
I've just upgraded to a V6 (it's arriving on Wednesday)... we have quite a lot to watch on our current TiVo (I didn't realised how much...) can you have a TiVo and a v6 connected to the same tv / router? It would only be why I watch the remaining recorderded stuff on my TiVo box?
I have that... although you don't need to as you cans stream all the stuff from the tivo and watch it on the V6
Only 1 tv in the house so no where else to really put the tivo, however apart from when it was 1st setup.. and once to try and compare picture quality, I haven't really watched the tivo directly.
However the main problem is with the remotes. If you use IR it will control both boxes at the same time, unless you put something infront of the IR reciever on the box. Once the V6 remote has been paired then it will only use RF so wont effect the old box.
HOWEVER you need to make sure they know you're keeping the tivo for a while and you effectively have to pay to go multi room for a bit even though its the same room.
