    Is there a way to move a recorded show on one of my Tivo series 2 units to another of my Tivo series 2 units? They are both LAN connected also.


    Thanks

    MRV is native to the TiVo. As long as both units are in the same account (meaning they have the same MAK), each TiVo will appear as a folder in the NPL of the other.

    One is in my name and other someone gave me as they are using the cable companies dvr now so is in their name. Is this ok or do I need to get with Tivo to update something?

    BOTH Tivos needs to be on your tivo.com account, with DVR Preferences checked for TRANSFERS and DOWNLOADS on each box, MUST have the SAME Media Access key on all Tivo Boxes.

    So, if a box you possess is not on your own tivo.com account, you need to call Tivo Customer service (800-367-8486) to have the Tivo box moved to your account or you will not be able to transfer at all.

    Well, not directly. One could kludge the thing by runnning two copies of kmttg and pyTiVo, transferring first to the server and then to the other TiVo, but I definitely recommend contacting TiVo to get them moved to a single account.
