Upgrading from box to tivo

Just about to upgrade to TiVo fromV+ box.

one problem is what to do with all the recordings we have on our existing box. Is there a way to copy across or still use the old box to watch these recordings?.

Re: Upgrading from box to tivo

Sorry there is no way to transfer the recordings to TiVo or watch them once you've done the swap. You'll need to either watch the recordings, or transfer them to VHS / Recordable DVD via the SCART on the V+ HD box.

Re: Upgrading from box to tivo

Thanks for your quick reply. That's what I thought..

about recording to a dvd, which I can do, do I have to do this while still connected to virgin or can I do it at my leisure once the new box is up and running?....I have a funny feeling that once disconnected, the old box is only for scrap....!!!

You'll have to do it before you activate your TiVo.
