    Does anyone know if I use my copy for the TCD140 on my TCD240 Tivo if it will work?

    No. The models are very different. You must use software based on the first three digits of the model number or TSN.

    That's wrong. The 240 and 140 models use the exact same software. The most current software version for both the 240 and 140 models is 8.3-01-2-140

    the OP can use his 140 software on a 240 Tivo because it is the same.

    My apologies. This is the first time I've heard of two S2 models sharing a software distribution. I don't own a 240 series, but I had to maintain different versions for 140, 264, 540, 649, and 565 series.

    Interesting that PTVUpgrade lists different versions for these. I would like to know if the 140 version works in a 240.

    DVRUpgrade asks buyers to choose the model being upgraded not the software version for the upgrade.


    See my first response to this thread. If you are still unsure, see my second response in this thread. the OP is not the first person to ask about this, nor would he be the first to actually do it. I wasn't even the first when I did it last year.
