Transferring recordings from your old TiVo to your new V6

There's been some confusion over this but, in a nutshell, you can't, so if you're swapping a TiVo packed with recordings for a shiny new V6 you will lose them when you hand over the box. However VM man Spiderplant does assure me that if you keep the TiVo as a second box and it's connected to the Internet you can stream those TiVo recordings through your V6.

You can transfer the settings from your old box to the V6 though.

I've got a v6 coming this week so can I keep the other TiVo box with all my recordings on to watch in another room?

I went to the virgin store and had a play around with the V6, the user interface is exactly the same, it`s just a lot faster.They said you can keep your old tivo but they will charge £7 a month while you still have it.
You can access content from your tivo through the V6, it`s a bit like having a computer with 2 hard drives, just select the drive that has your content on it
