ARWL = Auto Record Wish List.betts4 said:What is ARWL? And how do I know if I have a series 2 tivo? I got this as a christmas present from my sister who loves hers....but don't know what model etc I have.
It should say what it is on the back and in the manual. If it's a recent gift and it wasn't bought used from ebay, then it's probably a Series 2. If it has USB ports, then it's a Series 2. If you have the "overlap protection" mentioned above, then it's a Series 2 (New Messages and Settings>Settings>Recording>Recording Settings>Overlap Protection). If it's had any SW updates in the last couple of years then it's a Series 2
