He can still take it with him.RonDawg said:There's a caveat to taking it with you. If you stay within the 50 United States, you won't have a problem as long as you're willing to go through Guided Setup again and download new program data.
Canada recently got TiVo, so I don't think taking your TiVo north of the border should be a problem.
However, outside of the US and Canada you would have a problem, mostly due to a lack of TiVo service. But even in the UK, which has TiVo, they have an incompatible TV system.
