I have a Humax Lifetime in my living room with Comcast abd a cable box and a Toshiba with MSD in the bedroom without a box. In a second bedroom I just have straight cable with no box and no Tivo.
I am thinking of getting a HD Tivo and doing the install in the third bedroom. Get it all set up, plugged in and cable cards set without disrupting the main family room. With the transfer of the Toshiba MSD to the HD, the Toshiba will just revert back to basic.
After the HD is all set up and works properly, I will then unplug and move to the family room.
Does installing the HD in a third location to work out the bugs make sense?
