I have a Tivo 500GB in the lounge, and a V+ HD box in a second room. I will shortly be the recipient of a Tivo box swap which will replace the V+ in the second room with a 1TB Tivo. It would make sense to have the higher capacity box in the lounge. Can I just move the existing Tivo to the second room, and put the new one in the lounge? Or is Virgin's activation system room specific, so the move will require some authorisation?
New Tivo arrived and self-installed in place of my Samsung V+ this afternoon I swapped the Samsung V+ for the old Scientific Atlanta in another room. The only mistake I made was to put the smartcard for the Samsung V+ into the Tivo and the smartcard for the Scientific Atlanta into the Samsung V+ which meant it thought it was a NEW smartcard and wouldn`t show all the channels!!
I phoned 150 and a very helpful Stephen sorted it out for me. The Tivo doesn`t need a card, so he told me to put the Samsung V+ card back where it was and he rebooted everything to ensure I got the channels back. He also helped out with codes for the Tivo remote to make the volume worked on my TV!
More than happy with the level of service from Virgin today
