Found the copy option on here as it didn't appear under manage my tivo box.
The old (deactivated) box and the new V6 box appear. Select them and click on copy series links.
It says ok and added to tivo queue. Check in 30 minutes.
Tried this several times over the past few days but they still haven't copied.
Oddly enough the thumbs copied over no problem - just not the important part,
