Swapping hard drives

If I swap the hard drives in two identical machines, will the programming I have recorded remain on both hard drives? I have an upgraded Tivo with a 200 hour hard drive, but can't get local channels. I want to swap it with a 30 hour Tivo that is getting local channels. Thanks.

Recorded programs are tied to the Tivo units motherboard serial number. A drive can be moved from one identical unit to another but the recorded programs will not be watchable even though listed in Now Playing.

Hey...funtoupgrade. Thanks for the advice. Even though my receiver had not detected the 72.5 satellite previously, it did this time and now I can get local channels on my Tivo with the upgraded hard drive. Wednesday I will temporarily retire my second Tivo with 30 hours as I am installing an HD Directv Tivo to go along with my new HD monitor.
