Tivo Boxes

Hi guys.

This week just gone I've had to have a replacement box only to find out my recordings are now non existent.

Would I be able to swap the hard drives over from my old box to my new box before I send the box back?

Basically the majority of my recordings are Leicester games from last season and the Chelsea v Tottenham game, trophy footage etc.

Cheers

Re: Tivo Boxes

Would the recordings not be saved on that hard drive though?

Yes, but you aren't allowed to open up and modify VM equipment and VM have different kinds of tamper proof protections in place in their kit

Re: Tivo Boxes

So there will be no option to get everything saved on there off it? Pretty poor in my opinion. Especially with the memorable moments of last season Smiley Sad

Come on guys surely there is a way

Re: Tivo Boxes

You probably won't want to hear this but you should have made copies of memorable and irreplaceable data, that's why the TiVo comes with that facility.

Every piece of hardware is liable to failure, I'm sure you make backups of important files on you computer so why not your TiVo?
