    Just want to run this past someone.
    Would it be possible to run 2 TIVO's from one subscription.
    Could you not image the first units hard drive onto the second unit and change the call time of TIVO to a different one to the first.
    Aslong as both were connected to the same phone line how would anyone know that it is a different unit.

    Apologies if I've been a bit vague. But as prices are low I' seriously considering buying a second TIVO but don't want to pay another tenner on top.

    AFAIK the subscription os matched against the serial no. not the image of the hard drive so it wouldn't work

    Yeah, it's tied to the motherboard.

    But, there's no reason why you couldn't use one TiVo fully subscribed, then the other as a dumb recorder. Obviously, you'd want the subscribed TiVo to be the one you use the most.
