Advice on moving tivos

I know this stuff is piecemeal throughout the forum, but thought I'd ask here first.

Have 2 premieres both about half full but I can delete some stuff. I have a new roamio that will get transferred service from one of them, and a new mini to replace the bedroom premiere. Also have a wd20eurs arriving tomorrow along with a moca adapter.

What is the advice on moving to the new system? My thought was to:
-transfer everything to keep to the bedroom premiere.
-install the new hard drive in the roamio
-replace the empty living room premiere with the upgraded roamio
-call my cable company to have the cable card from my living room re-synced for the new roamio
-transfer everything from the bedroom premiere to the roamio
-cancel service in the bedroom
-install moca network
-set up new mini in bedroom
-verify moca works
-install Poe filter in junction box outside the house between the line from the street and the first splitter
-verify moca still works

Does this sound sane? Am I better off using kmttg to grab everything from both tivos and pytivo to push it back to the new roamio?

With kmttg and pytivo, are the recordings tied to the tivo I pulled them from? Or can I push them to a new tivo to make them watchable again?

Thanks!
TL;dr I need help!

If I kill service to a tivo, can I still watch what I have recorded? I know I can't transfer anything, but just being able to watch would be enough

Which Roamio models? Basic, Plus or Pro? Except for the basic, Moca is already built-in.

Why cancel service, when you can get $99 lifetime on the Premieres. More value with lifetime on resale.

You can play recordings on a unsubscribed Tivo but no REW/FF/pause features.

Thanks. It is a roamio basic. I already had a stream, got the moca adapter for free from tivo, and was gonna upgrade the hard drive anyway, so It would have been another $150-$200 for 2 tuners I don't need to get the plus

I'd pull everything you want to archive to a PC using kmttg as a backup. That way you won't lose them if your hard drive crashes. You should be able to transfer shows, albeit one at a time, from TiVo to TiVo.
