How is it possible Tivo still doesn't have a way to do this? Their developers waste their time on stupid apps and not something that would make people more likely to upgrade to a new model?
I received email today for a promo code to upgrade my Premiere to Roamio with up to $200 off, and I considered it, but then I thought what a giant pain it was when I upgraded to the Premiere from a Series 2 and lost years worth of thumb ratings. It sounds like all I can transfer are my recordings and my season passes?
Maybe there's some unsupported way to do this? Or should I just figure that my Premiere is good enough for now and hope that maybe by the time Roamio is replaced they'll finally provide something useful in a software update, instead of a new UI for Netflix or once again ignoring some of the long standing bugs in basic functionality?
I wouldn't mind having 4 tuners, once in a while I have conflicts with 2, and I could use a bit more hard drive space. But I guess I don't want those things enough to be forced to start fresh again. Does Tivo really gain more sales having a Youtube app than they lose from loyal customers who think like I do? I doubt it.
