360 different boxes different series links

Just joined


I've just upgraded to 360.

I have a box downstairs in the living room my patents use and a box upstairs I use.

We have different series links and recording on the V6 and they didn't interfer with each other.

How can I do this on the 360?

The short answer is that you can't. The TiVo-software that drives V6 boxes is fundamentally designed for multiple recording pools, all of which can be shared.

The Horizon-software that drives TV360-boxes is built around a single recording pool shared by every box. If you've converted multiple V6 into multiple TV360-master boxes, then you have some control over whether recordings are put onto box-1 or box-2. If an additional master box ever develops a fault, it'll be replaced with a TV360-mini which doesn't have a hard drive.

TV360 is fundamentally different to V6, and this is one of the differences.

As Japitts has pointed out, it's one of the many limitations of the 360 box compared to the 360, the 360 isn't an upgrade it's a change of software due to the takeover by Liberty Global, though obviously that isn't how VM is selling it as they want everyone to switch over eventually.

Some of the missing features are as follows; Wishlists (where you can set the box to record programs on certain subjects or featuring certain people), undelete, series link+, series link manager, suggestions, setting of series links for programs not in the current TV guide, ethernet control, keyboard support via USB, switching between tuners with constant buffering, skip-back on fast-forward, quickplay, default recording options, cancelling individual recordings from a series link, multi-channel series links, radio channels allowing recording of radio, separation of recordings between boxes, watching recordings when internet is not available and probably a few others I've forgotten.

Also, extra boxes do not have their own hard disks or tuners (unless converted from a V6 box), so you lose storage space and recording ability and are also reliant on the main box being on to watch and set recordings and also on having a decent wi-fi signal (or ethernet cable) between the two boxes when watching recordings.
