    So I have two premieres. One has a lifetime subscription and the other does not, BUT it has a 2 tv hard drive upgrade.

    Can I take the 2 tb drive out and just plop it in the lifetime premiere? Or...

    Thx in advance

    If they are the exact same model tivo, you should be able to swap them.

    You will likely have to do a clear and delete, to get the new tivo to work and likely have to re-pair your cable card.

    As long as they are the same model number. As said in the previous post, it will require a C&DE to get the discrepancy between the MB TSN and what is stored on the hard drive resolved. If you are lucky, the CableCard will not need to be re-paired. I didn't have to re-pair mine when I upgraded to a larger drive on my P2.
