I purchased a new pro from TiVo to replace my XL4. My plan was to leave my XL4 connected and operational during the pro setup. So I set the pro up on my network (without the Comcast cable card) did all the updates and called in to TiVo and they transferred service from my XL4. At that time they also activated a new service on my XL4 which will keep it active so I have time to transfer my shows. Then I can cancel that service within 30 days and get a refund.
Everything was as expected up to this point. The pro is just sitting there without a cc and nothing done except for the initial setup and activation. I look at it and see the red record light on and see it is recording channel 1 which is VOD on Comcast. I stop it and assume it is a fluke. Later I again see the red light on and apparently it has downloaded a show "1337 Wine TV" over the net connection. I now look in season pass manager an I see one show "King of the Nerds" set up on season pass. Any thoughts on this? It's a brand new pro just received from TiVo and sure looks untouched. Later today I plan to transfer season passes and finally my shows from the XL4 and follow up with the cc swap.
