    If I bought a 2nd series-1 tivo would I need to get a second subscription? or can they program listsing be 'shared'?.


    thanks

    The subscription is per TiVo - therefore 2 x TiVo = 2 x Subscription required.

    In the US you can get a 50% discount for subsequent TiVos per household (up to a max of 5, IIRC) - but for the time being we are locked into the old pricing model of 1 box = 1 sub.

    The best solution, IMHO, is to get lifetime subs. That way you just feel the pain once and then it's all free :)

    thank for replies, on my tivo i have the lifetime sub, much better.

    I presume that its a bad idea / illegal to attempt to copy program listings from 1 tivo to another (presuming they were both networked).

    I only have 1 tivo any way at the mo and that is not networked. Just interested...

    If its naughty to ask this, let me know. I'm new to the forum.


    Thanks

    Yes it's a forbidden topic here - The question would fall under Service Theft

    Rgds,
