Tomorrow I get my new Roamio Basic. I already have an HD DVR and I want to transfer recorded shows from the HD DVR to the Roamio.
I only have one Ethernet cable long enough to run to my Tivo so I can't hook both my HD DVR and Roamio to the Internet from my TV stand.
I only have one Ethernet cable going to my TV so I’ll have to plug in my HD DVR to a power outlet and Ethernet connection and place it under my computer.
I’ll use the Ethernet cable from my router to my new Roamio sitting under the TV.
So here’s the picture:
1. New Roamio hooked up to TV and Tivo Ethernet service and OTA antenna.
2. Old HD DVR plugged into power outlet and a spare Ethernet port on my router and placed away from my TV and under my computer desk.
Can I transfer all my recordings from my HD DVR to my new Roamio through the Roamio menu?
I hope I’ve done an adequate explanation of my dilemma.
