I am trying to transfer shows from one TiVo to another.
It is a very complicated story, but basically I am about half way through the switchover of my old TiVo's to the two new ones.
TiVo Series 2 kitchen - working
TiVo HD Living room - working
TiVo Series 2 on shelf - just reactivated so I could do this.
TiVo Premiere - new out of box - activated but no m-cable card
I transferred shows from the kitchen TiVo to my living room one.
Then, unplugged the kitchen one, and moved the living room one in there. It is now working fine in there. No issues.
Then hooked the Premiere up in the living room. It is powered up and updated, but not connected to cable. Waiting for a comcast visit.
So I have all my shows on the HD in the kitchen and Premiere in Living room.
I thought - hey, I have till saturday when the guy brings the m-card so maybe I can pull the old OLD TiVo off the shelf and get any old shows off of that.
I took the G-wireless from the premiere, hooked it up to the old series 2 and got green lights. I then restarted the HD to see if I can get them to talk to each other and show the series 2 on the Now Playing section for transfers. ( I did call TiVo and get it reactivated).
It's not showing up.
I am not sure if I have them too close to each other - on the same table. Or need to do something else with the old series 2 - it is not attached to a tv at this point. Just plugged into the wall and with the wireless - no other cable or such in it. I didn't think they would need that if it was working thru the network - but maybe it's not and I am not sure how to get it to.
