Great column, exactly how I felt. I heard that more than likely we will only be able to transfer recordings from tivo to the pc and vice versa and not from tivo to tivo. Since you have done the mod and put the new software on your tivos, can you still transfer recordings from one tivo to the other? Have you given it a go yet? I have the HNP and the multi room viewing is one of tivo's features that I really really like.
Also were you able to download the WinMFS beta 9.3G software to backup your original tivo drives for safe keeping, if so what website did you go to to download the WinMFS as I have googled everywhere trying to find it to no avail.
You only had to ask when we had that very long discussion, and I'd be happy to give you a link to winmfs beta 9.3G in my Dropbox. I won't post the link here for obvious reasons. Just PM me.
I have added a plea to others here in the Bay of Plenty - please don't dump TIVO. Recycle them and send on to the locals here who are working to recycle/rework them.
