Here is my situation: Have a Series I Dtvio (Philips DSR6000) from 2001 which I had expanded to 108 hours with second 80GB HD + original 40GB HD way back when. It's been acting flaky the last couple months and afraid one of the hard drives are gonna kick. This was purchased w/CC 5 yr warranty and a call to DTV they actually sent me a replacement unit and was told to "throw away" (hah!) the old one. So they sent me an R10 (series II).
So far so good (until I realized that this couldn't be hacked for TiVo Web, but I digress). I have a 300GB HD I'd like to replace (and remove the original 80 GB) in the R10 which I am confident I can do as the tools have only gotten easier in the past couple of years, but here's the rub..... is there anyway I can copy/move my recordings and season passes from the DSR6000 (series I) that I will retire?
Initially I thought I could just do the "Replace 2 HD w/Signle HD option" but then it ocurred to me that the software would likely be overwritten with the ancient series I on the series II unit.
