New tivo

Okay so I just ordered my V+ box swap. What happens If I don't get a chance to watch all the stuff that's on it? I know it can be recorded to VCR/DVD but I no longer have either of those.

So my question is can I back it up to my laptop and if so how?

I'm not very tech savvy so forgive me if the answer is obvious to you.

Thanks in advance.

Re: New tivo

You can use a USB video capture system to record in SD from the V+ HD box's SCART socket to your laptop.

However this would basically take as much time as watching the programmes in the first place as they would have to be played back in real time.

There is no way to transfer the data on the V+ HD hard disk directly to your laptop.

Your simplest option is to watch all your programmes from your V+ HD box before you set up your new TiVo box.

Re: New tivo

Thanks. Nothing for it but to sit and watch all my recorded stuff.
