How can I keep my save shows/films if I switch Tivo boxes?

I did try phoning Virgin to ask - but they just sent me a bunch of links that don't help at all. Any help would be hugely welcome!

If you replace a TiVo, you can't keep existing recordings. They are lost.

You can recover your Series Link+s.

Cheers Ernie. Now I feel sad - and I've stuck the new Tivo back in its cardboard box. Don't want to switch now. Grrr.

The hard disks in these units are provided to allow you to timeshift programmes to a more convenient time for viewing. They are not designed (or licenced) to hold recordings permanently.

Hi AnnieMuge,

 

Thank you for your message and choosing to switch your TiVo box. I can see that you've had a few useful bits of information here, thanks guys.

 

You can move over the recordings schedule and if you can make note of the recordings you have already, I'm sure the new box will be able to pick up the majority right away and then some over time. 

 

I hope that you're able to go ahead with it and keep in touch.

Ben
