    Have been searching for some time and can't seem to find answer for simple question.

    Tivo 2 at home on wireless network to Comcast cable.(Salt Lake City)
    Tivo 2 with me here. (Tuscon) Not connected to anything. No cable access. Unactivated but have account.
    Laptop connected to high speed in Tuscan.

    Can I download programming from SLC box to Tuscan laptop or Tivo box.

    you need to put the TiVo you have with you on broadband or a phone line so it can connect and do a guided setup. (I assume that is what you are trying to do)

    No, tivos can't send data across internet. They only send data locally from tivo to tivo on home network or tivo to pc on home network.

    FYI, by opening/forwarding appropriate router ports (http=80 & https=443) you can certainly download shows to a PC on WAN side, however doing so is a violation of Tivo's Terms Of Service.
