    If I get myself a new Tivo Premiere with active service, can I use my current Tivo3 to do multi room viewing without having service on the Tivo3?

    Does multi room viewing require that both boxes have active service?

    Yes, all Tivo require service to use MRV. Basically its like a license to use the Tivo software and its features.

    What he said, but if you're going to get a new Premiere tell them you'll only do so if they give you the $99 lifetime deal on the S3.

    Then either use it for MRV, or add more than $100 to the price you would have been able to ask for it, and sell it.

    You have to register the boxes you want to allow MVR with on your Tivo account. Even if one box is out of service then it will not work. You should just keep the second box on your account -- they usually only charge about $6.95 for a second box. It is pretty worth to have around.
