Moving house

We are planning to move house and I was wondering will my recorded programmes be deleted when we reconnect to our new house ?

What's on the STB's hard drive would stay on the STB's hard drive (until it reaches that 90% full mark where it starts auto-deleting old recordings to free up space), you're going to take your equipment with you when doing the home move.

Re: Moving house

Hi Wrights125,

A warm welcome to our community Smiley Happy

I can see you've met our lovely community members Shelke and Parrotperson already.  They've both given you some very useful information here in regards to your query of whether or not your recordings would be lost or not.  

I just wanted to add that if in the event your box has to be swapped (Hopefully you won't need to), whilst recordings couldn't be recovered, you can copy over the settings relating to Series Links, Wish Lists and Thumbs Ratings.  If you ever need the instructions on how to do this, they can be found here: How to copy TiVo® settings.

I hope it won't come to swapping the boxes over, but we like to make sure you have all you need to know where possible.  

I hope the house move goes well and as stress free as possible.  If you need anything or have any further queries, please don't hesitate to ask.  We're here to help if you need us.

Re: Moving house

Just be aware that for technical reasons you can't always take your current box with you so you may lose your recordings if you have to have a new box.

Assume it's more likely than not that you will lose all your recordings, and plan accordingly.
