    Can anyone confirm that moving the Atmel crypto chip from one S2 DT to another will make the second unit think that it's the first unit and make the drive(s) from the first unit think that the second unit is the first unit so that I can rescue the recorded shows?

    I have done such a transplant on a 140 model. It should be no different on any TiVo which uses a crypto chip, moving just that chip and the drive to the same brand and board model.

    Thanks for the feedback. As soon as the mailman brings the Chip Quik we'll find out!
