Will new TiVo v6 box copy over old recordings?

The launch announcement has an interesting sentence:

The new set-top box is completely compatible with our original TiVo box meaning that existing customers can keep recordings and transfer settings while updating their home entertainment.

(my emphasis)

So, does that mean that my nearly 100 recordings will be able to be transferred over from my existing TiVi box? I do hope so!!

I'd expect that to be wishful thinking, but I'd hope to be pleasantly surprised to the contrary!
What may be the case is that the system will exist to permit transferring Thumbs, Settings, & Series Links to the new box, while also permitting watching the old content on the new box via an Ethernet connection.

Well the words "can keep recordings" does rather suggest that they will. It would be nice to hear an official line from Virgin.

Well the fact that I have one and you can't suggests otherwise, you can transfer recordings to a tablet with the new box and I'd guess that's what they mean
