I have received my replacement Tivo box for my old one (second room) It is telling me I have to register it within 7 days. My wife has stuff she needs to watch before I do this and it will take more that 7 days to do this. If I replace the old box can I then plug it back in to watch the recorded programmes as and when she wants to watch them?
What happens if I don't register it within 7 days? Does it self destruct!!!!!!!
Thanks for the info, it doesn't say anything on the instructions about what happens after 7 days, I'll try to find a number to ring. The one that is given is an automated service which I have used in the past to set up my broadband.
Thank you for coming in and welcome to the Community
It's great that you have added an updated box in the home
To answer your question on post 7 day registration, would be that we have provisioned all the aspects of the services to help bring the services on as soon as the box is switched over. It may be that after the 7 days, you may need to call in and have us bring the box on.
Can I ask have you been able to get the box on or call in?
Thanks for getting in touch about the activation of your TiVo® box replacement. The 7 day activation is an automatic process unless you contact us to activate this beforehand.
I have checked the account and can see that that this has now auto activated on our systems for you in the early hours of this morning.
I hope you had a chance to watch all the recordings on your previous recordable box with us. My apologies if this was not the case. From today you will no longer be able to watch the recordings on your old box.
The box swap auto activation is necessary to ensure that you get the box swap for free as part of the upgrade. If this is not activated within the 7 days you may not have been eligible for the discount on the second TiVo® box you now have with us.
Please let us know if you need anything else, and we'll do our best to help out.
