Can't see me upgrading presently when you want extra money for the V6 and then even more money to allow me to watch what I already have recorded on my Tivo. Obviously no customer loyalty benefits for someone who's been with you around 20 years! Maybe time to investigate other options if you are not willing to be more flexible to upgrade.
There has never been a means to transfer recordings between boxes, and as they aren't an archiving device, the content is expendable.
Each box needs an active VM coa connection to function, and to be registered on your account, which has a charge associated with it. It's not a case of "let me keep my box to watch old recordings", it's a case of "I want free multi room until I've watched old recordings".

As i would be paying extra for the new V6 box anyway, its hardly asking for free multi room in my opinion, for what would probably only be a month. But the extra cost to keep the old Tivo is a 12 month contract!
