    I am upgrading from a TS3 to a TP XL. I called Cablevision of NY and they told me I do not require a truck roll and I can come to their office and pick up a M Cable card for the new Tivo.

    Is it easy to transfer the showed saved on my TS3 to the Tivo Premiere?

    As long as the show is not copy protected and both TiVos have active service - yes.

    Edit - I see you are upgrading. Do they keep the old TiVo active for a while so you can transfer the shows betwen them? If not you will need to transfer the shows from the S3 to a computer before switching your service and then transfer them to the TP after you switch. They would still need to not be copy protected.

    Some are copy protected because I can't move them to my computer. That means they cannot be moved between Tivos?

    I got the Tivo Premiere last night and tried to do a home install. Of course the first cablevision rep screwed up the pairing and said she needed to send a tech to do the install. I called back twice and spoke to other reps and they said whatever the first person did messed up the card and they have to send someone with a new one. So I have a $300 piece of nonworking hardware just sitting on a shelf. Yeah, I'm disappointed. :-(

    Apparently the first 3 reps didn't know what they were doing. I just tried calling again and the woman said "Oh boy, they really did this wrong." She put me on hold for about 15 minutes then came back and I had a working cable card. I said I LOVE YOU!!!! LOL My Tivo is working. The iPad app is pretty cool to. :)
