2 Tivos, 1 Service Plan?


Recommended Posts

Okay I have a Tivo w/ service (already payed lifetime fee), (guide, updates, etc) and a Tivo w/o service. Do I need to pay 2 services, or can I plug both into the same phoneline and have both services?

pretty sure you're going to need another service plan because they are link to the hardware address/service number of the tivo

That lifetime service is specific to that box and that box only. You will need a second plan.

I believe you can get the second tivo for $6.95/month! Goto manage my account on tivo.com and activate the second one, you should get the multi-box discount even though you got the lifetime activation.

See http://www.tivo.com/1.6.2.asp#MSD for more info!

PS - I think we need a dedicated DVR forum on neowin!

Ughhh, they make you pay per TiVo. That sucks.

there is another option, but it isn't as nice as having a real tivo box.

If you mod your xbox you can use XBMC to connect to your tivo (you have to mod that too), and then you can watch live streams, as well as your recorded shows. Sure streaming isn't as nice as a real box, but it's a cool solution since if you have an xbox and network connection, you can watch your shows all over the house.
