there is a possibility that my box will have to be replaced when a technician visits soon. Is it possible to save my recorded programmes, series etc to a portable hard drive as I do not really want to lose it all?
Thank you for your reply. I am not very tech savvy, being the wrong generation so my apologies if this is a stupid question. By "real time" do you mean It cannot be copied from a recording but would have to be copied from the live transmission?
You have to play the recording from My Shows and start the recorder going at the same time. You cannot watch anything else on the TiVo during this process, although you can record other programs concurrently.
