Trying to make this as short as possible....we now have 2 tivo boxes hooked up with our cable. One early one, and one of the new premieres (just purchased a few months ago), both have lifetime service. Monkey wrench in the works. We are now moving to an area which does not have cable service and we will wind up with satellite service. I understand that neither of my boxes can be used. (crying---I LOVE my tivos). I have read about the new DirectTV/Tivo box which does make me happy but I don't know quite what to do. Since both of my boxes have lifetime service I know I can transfer that. Don't know yet if we got one of the DirectTV ones if we could transfer one of the lifetime subscriptions to a new box or not. (Don't think so cause we couldn't with the new one we bought) If we get a DirectTV/Tivo box is there advice on which is the best? I hate the thought of giving up my Tivo.
