You can't take your recordings from an old box to a new I'm afraid. The only way to do it is to run a scary cable to a DVD player and record onto DVD in real time ,so you wouldn't be able to watch anything else whilst doing it
before you complain😟TiVo is designed to allow you to watch programmes you've missed by time shifting them ie you recording watching then deleting. TiVo doesn't come with the licensing rights to transfer programs to another TiVo
as to whether he'll swap the box, personally I'd get him to try a new remote (your spare not withstanding) before anything else.
Thanks for your post and apologies to hear you are having an issue with your TiVo® box.
Before replacing the TiVo® we will try a number of things to avoid this outcome however if the option is to replace it then as already mentioned by Parrotperson, there is no feature to transfer your recordings.
What you can do however is copy all the settings over to the new TiVo® so it at least avoid you needing to re-setup your series links, wishlists and thumb ratings.
Do you have any plans in the future to enable the facility to swap recorded programs from one box to another?
i'm pretty sure this is a common question that you get asked.
i'm having a faulty TivoV6 box replaced Thursday and will be gutted when I loose all my saved recordings which I won't get to watch before then
couldnt the engineer swap the memory card its stored on or something similar?
Doesn't matter if VM have plans for it or not. If the programme makers that own the copyright on the material won't allow it then you can't use it. As previously said, recording is for timeshift purposes only. Any other use of material is in breach of contract with the channel owner.
