Box Swap

I had an email saying that you were giving me a free TiVo box to replace my old V+ box but I just realised that I have 2 boxes one was changed a little while ago to the V+ box and the other that it replaced I have in the other room and is a V Box HD which box does the TiVo replace?

I did see the response to other people asking about the email saying the bill had changed think I understand your response on that

Re: Box Swap

The boxes being replaced by TiVO's are the older Scientific Atlanta type V+ HD box only. If you have a Cisco VHD or a Samsung V+HD, these are fine, & will still decode the channels that are being moved to MPEG4 compression standard.

Re: Box Swap

Thanks for the reply one box is the Cisco but the other is the Scientific Atlanta V+ HD box

I have some program saved on the Scientific one is there a way to copy them to disk or another storage device?

Re: Box Swap

Via the VCR scart on the back, to a DVD recorder, VCR or analogue capture card on a PC. Transfer will be in real time, so if you have a lot to transfer it will be a long job.
