Thank you Diana, very good points. Assuming we buy it and all goes well with DTV, we planned to take our already upgraded (size & software version 6.4a) harddrive from our RCA DVR40 and put it in the 'new' TIVO. Then do the Clear & Delete so it will tie itself to the new hardware/unit? Yes, it would likely need to do a Phone Home to activate TIVO recording again. Since we don't have a landline, will would likely take the unit to a friend house that does and have it connect that first required time.
Sound plausable?

I honestly don't remember the guided setup process (it has been 8 or 9 years since I setup a new DirecTiVo). I think that will work...IIRC you can skip the call during setup and then make it later. What I am not sure about is if that call will succeed in correctly activating the unit if there is no satellite connection at the time. I don't THINK it will be a problem but I'm not sure.

Dish Network Customer from 9/1998-11/2001
DirecTV Customer 10/2001 - 7/2014

FiOS TV/TiVo Customer since 6/2014
Moderator, DBSDish.com 1999-2000

Yeah same here, it's been like 8-9years! What is IIRC? Yeah I believe we can do the activate phone call without satellite/tuners connected (fingers crossed).

if I see some word unknown to me, I'm doing double click on it (to highlight it), then do mouse right button click, select from a menu Google search and getting all info, like for the one: http://www.urbandict...e.php?term=iirc
