nope recordings are tied to the motherboardsorry, just saw this - what about pulling the old hard drive, using it as an external drive to the new one - transferring recordings to computer - remove hard drive - transfer back recordings from computer to new tivo
You wouldn't even get that far. Your first problem is that the drive inside a TiVo is not one of the few (now very rare) drives that will work as an external drive. If you could somehow get by that problem (perhaps by getting a Series 3 which did not have the pickiness about what it would accept as an external drive), the process of the TiVo preparing the external drive for use would erase any recordings.nope recordings are tied to the motherboard
No.My Bolt+ died & TiVo sent me a new one. Any way to get the old recordings to the new drive?
[Reaching for Straws]...Old drive went dark, can hear drive spinning, but no lights, no output, or broadcast to WAN. Have to send back old unit in a couple of weeks. TIA
