Is it possible to transfer the saved shows from the old PVR to a new one? I searched the forums and it doesn't appear that you can, but any discussion about that topic is a few years old. I'm hoping things have changed.
Someone made the following comment in another discussion:
What I've done when I upgraded, was leave the older digital box connected, and just moved all my up coming series recordings to the new box. That way I could still access the older shows on the old box, and any new recordings will be on the new box. Once I caught up on all the old recordings, I removed the old box.
If I can't transfer my saved shows, how can I set up two pvrs?
What is the old and new PVR model? If the remotes are the same, this can be an issue.
If they use different remotes, all is good. If they use the same remote, you will need to cover the IR receiver on the PVR not being used.
Otherwise, just plug both of them in using different inputs on your TV. Probably need a cable splitter on the cable line.
