I see plenty of threads about trying to transfer copywritten shows to PC, but I am frustrated about a different form of transfer. All I want to do is transfer an HBO HD movie from one Tivo HD to another Tivo HD in a different room. Here is the setup: (Both boxes have all newest updates)
I just got a Tivo HD XL with a Comcast cable card (multistream) in our family room. Everything is working correctly with it after the Comcast guy came out yesterday.
My wife has a Tivo HD upstairs and the Comcast guy had a problem installing the card. I get most of the HD channels, but no movie channels or HD channels above 225. He said it's not the cable card's fault he doesn't think, but they didn't have any more cable cards to try. So my wifes Tivo can view HD but only on some channels. The channels she can't see don't say "denied" or anything, just a black screen.
All I want to do is have her stream the movies she wants from the downstairs unit (obviously that shouldn't be copyright infringment because both my boxes are on the same home internal network and both on Comcast) and it just shows the circle with the line through it saying it is protect by copyright and can't be transferred?!
It's not like I'm trying to burn it to dvd which I understand would be an issue, but since she can't see any of the movie channels I was hoping she could watch them this way.
Do you think it's possible this issue is just related to the Comcast cable card? Like since she can't view the movie channels on hers, it recognizes that?
