Would multi room work with one subscribed TiVo and one not?

    I'm sure the answer is both need to be subscribed, but figured I'd ask.

    I have one TiVo HD with lifetime and cable card. I received another TiVo HD and would ideally just put it in the bedroom and transfer shows from the living room TiVo.

    Can this be done without a subscription on the bedroom TiVo?

    Being able to share shows between TiVos is considered part of the TiVo service, which means paying for the TiVo service.

    Your current lifetimed HD qualifies you for the $9.95 per month rate on that second HD, instead of $12.95, if that's any consolation.

    Or you could keep it as a parts source, especially as a quick way to check for power supply problems.

    Sell both and get a Premiere 4 and a Mini instead.
