Use of old Tivo after upgrade to V6

Hi,

I recently moved house and the house I have moved into already has 2 of the VM wall coax things, 1 downstairs which currently has a TV6 installed and 1 upstairs which is not in use.

I am thinking about upgrading to the TV6, and I was wondering if it would be possible to then plug the old Tivo box into the coax wall thing upstairs? Would this work? Would I need to pay an extra subscription? Or???

Many thanks!

Yes, you could run the existing TiVo as an additional box. It would cost you an extra £7.50 a month to do.

The engineer that would come out to install your V6 box would move the existing box to the other location and make sure it was working.

Hi LHacking, 

 

Thanks for your post and welcome to the Community Smiley Happy Nice to have a new face in the crowd. 

 

BenMcr is spot on here. You will be able to use your old TiVo® box however you would need to add an additional outlet to your package in order for it to work. 

 

Without doing this, the box is pretty much useless. 

 

Let us know what you decide to do Smiley Happy

 

Thanks,
