I have had to install new TiVo box and was originally told I could download my recordings from old TiVo to new one but tonight after installing new TiVo was told you can't. is there a way to transfer recordings?
If you were told you could transfer recordings to the new box, then you were told wrongly. You can only tranfer series links. If you have Multiroom boxes, the recordings on one box can be streamed to another, but still remain on the original box. The only way to preserve recordings is to connect a DVD recorder or PC with a video capture card to the analogue (SCART) output from the TiVO, & copy in real time. There is no digital method of transfer available,
